Why do you ask me to adore you,
Clasping your fingers around the wrist
Of my frail hands, that has lost its strength?
You know better, you could entice a stronger
Lover than me, more charming and suave,
If you wish, and be with him for eternity.
My heart has melted out already and
I don’t have much to offer you, to fulfill
Your needs, as you fancy in your dreams.
Then why did you come to me from that
Faraway place, seeking only me?
I have not kept anything saved for you,
In the languor of my forgetfulness.
I have always been reminding myself,
That you are there in the faraway place
Keeping vigil to approach me one day,
And I knew you will come any day, seeking me
And embrace me in your love for me.
While I went out strolling around, in the pale
Moonlight through the darkened alleys,
I used to tell myself about your coming one day.
But Oh! DEATH, I never even wished it should
Be this moment that you chose to come;
Seeking me to take me away to your abode….
