Limping along due to circumstances,
Beyond my control, I find
The feeling of separation so painful.
As my sorrow melts to tears,
My ever widening thoughts
Plunge me in deep reflections,
Filling my mind with memories sweet.

Deep in my heart,
While I sit in darkness,
Plunged in thoughts,
I think about the serene dignity
Of suffering stemming from separation.

I think of those days
When you made a fire
From charcoal, to warm my tired legs.
I think of those nights
When you exalted my hidden beauties,
Filling my soul
With paradisiacal thoughts.

As the sun sets soberly,
Filling my inner self with
Enthusiasm and tenderness soft,
And my inner eyes with exotic imagination,
I swim in the silent lake
Among the lilies and blossoms fair.

I count the minutes on my fingers.
Tomorrow is so near and yet, so far.
You will be coming home
And our children’s faces
Will shine with a special lustre.
