Ode to Love V
Now and again sadness falls upon me.
I start up from my dream and feel a trace of
A fragrance, that of your breath you have left in me.
It was too vague. Its sweetness makes my heart
Ache with a longing and it seemed to me
That you are nearby- but know not so near.
The sweetness was only from the depth of my heart
Which blossomed? You gaze upon the vast emptiness
And feel a thrill passing through the veins
From the notes of an unsung music floating
From the other shore.
Oh my beloved! The gates of my hut are always
Open for you to enter.
Do not pass by like a dream.
