When I was reading a deep love for myself in her eyes,
She had completely dissolved in my breath.
When I was admiring her pink cheeks,
She had written her name in my heart.
When I gave her a red rose,
She gestured me to put that rose in her hair-
and as soon as I put that red rose in her hair,
So shy she was and lowerd her head
Both we were immersed in immense love.
The sky wanted to take earth in his arms,
and the earth wanted to be lost in the arms of the sky!
Centuries later, the two souls were eager to merge with each other.
She loved me extremely deep
I loved her extremely deep
We also made many promises
in the delicate moments of love
In that planet of romance
There was no one except the two of us
The thrill of those pledges made our love deeper
We both had
a different earth
a different sky
There were only the two of us
in that supernatural world
Time has traveled a bit
We lost our earth and sky
All dreams have come crashing down
All the promises flew away
like clouds in the wind
I am sitting by the sea
and seeing the palace of memories collapsing.
