The Books: I am the liking
best at the performance
some read, some bored not
yet, I am where you can find
searching for the knowledge
I am the liking
the one that you like
come on open me and read me
there is no where else, stay here
we could go on to the beach together
sit by the tall tree, open me and read
each pages are fascinated, love it
I am true to you dear, read me up
Never leaving you, you are the one gone
You will be satisfied and you will know
I am the liking, like me well
turn me page by page
gently read me up and down
you are loving the history, the lines
I am the liki...
