You remember what we have learnt last time? The "Janai" thing I told you that the negative form of "desu" is "janai" & both of them have a past form "Datta" & "janakatta" .
I told you also that the next lesson (This lesson) will be about the interrogative form but I changed my mind because it's too easy All what you have to do is to add the particle "ka" at the end of the sentence Like this:
"Anata wa Hiroto desu" . "You're Hiroto"
"Anata wa Hiroto desu ka?" .. "Are you Hiroto?"
So I decided to teach you something more useful & I guess you will like it!! How to say "I like something" & "I don't like something"!!

The yearning for learning
Quenched until the end of light
Now we only want freedoms delight
Looking forward for every day
Waiting for the day
When I can take my lady away
Into our personal dream
Where we are free
To do what we want
and be together
While the snow has been melting
I have seen my lady bloom
In line with the passing spring
Into a fully bloomed rose
She sits there in all her glory
The sun reflects of her eyes
like the bright red light
from the roses ravishing leafs
The sight warming my heart
Like the burning summer sun
Tickling my skin lightly
The warm feeling of love surfaces
With the rising temperature outside
Where we are free
To do what we want
and be together
The dream is closing in
Getting bigger and more colourful
Like the horizon you are hiding behind
I'm waiting for the white spear
The high growling sound
That tells me I can stop dreaming
Now you are here with me
