You showed me at my request,
Now that I am alone,
I find myself in a quest,
To get the answer alone.
I thought I would always have you,
But your advancement is crucial,
My thought tracks you,
Now I have to do the essential.
Such a great influence you had,
Almost denying the quintessence,
Lone and learning it hard,
At my teacher’s absence.
