Oh, dark clouds hovering over the sky,
See rain drops flowing from my eyes,
A lovelorn heart heaves with lonely sigh,
Melancholy grips as soulmate is not nigh.

I am drowning in the deluge of tears,
Lingering pain that never disappears,
A second seems like thousands of years,
Can this lover’s woe undeaf your ears?

I am getting caught in passion’s torment,
My lonely soul letting out a loud lament,
O, cloud, will you hear lover’s plea?
Unburden woes, take me to fly with thee.

To that heaven where my soul resides,
Where mysteries our souls abide,
In to the vast blue sky, take me for a glide,
To listen to the beats of her heart inside.

There is an ocean between us that divides,
Her heart is where my spring abides,
Take my feelings of love across the tides,
To her, message of love, my heart confides.
