I hold in low esteem the riches of this world
For I came not to seek for wealth,
I came to seek for love.
I have always been too fragile
To confront this temporal world,
Void and empty, neither bright nor vivacious.
I often felt lonely,orphaned and abandoned
Having no one to rely on
For soul sustenance and heart consolation
And most importantly love.
My culture unsophisticated,
My outside unpretentious,
Hiding not behind the mask of cosmetics
And my inside in-artificial, hiding a secret,
Though not attaching too much significance
To the rough path of mundane existence.
I have never felt any anger,
Like pulsating lava cascading
Or looked at the weary wars
With a sardonic sense.
Ethereal soul, wandering like a Summer breeze,
Watching at the same old world
Spinning on and on,
I waited for love.
I waited for that love,
Which like the sea would stretch beautifully
I believe in the seductive power of love
And its original vision,
Where faith doubts not
And hope despairs not.
And when I met you,
My pulse began to throb.
I knew you are the sun
That would bring light to my days.
You are not an object to be possessed
And yet, there is a domain in your heart
Which I can claim to be mine.
There, where there is eternal peace,
While the fragrance of the hyacinth
Blends perfectly with the jasmine.
