Look how starless
is tonight the mighty sky.
There is no light after you are gone,
except the looming darkness
that with me stands by.
Look how hardly do I writhe
in your absence.
There is no peace in my chest,
but only your thought
that in me still resides.
My heart is filled with mortal pain
I just very loudly unto you want to cry.
There is no peace in me as you see,
I don’t know till when in your thought like a baby I should cry.
I still sit to laugh at those long night talks that once we had together.
At that unconditional love,
I gave you still revives in my chest
like the north zephyr.
I still sit until late hours in your confabulation by holding tight
my heart that you have broken.
I cry unsired tears while remembering those kind words
once with me, you have spoken.
I have to tell you that
your love was really gracious.
This is what I have felt myself,
that your love was true and precious.
Now, all I remember
is your last unkind smiles
and your heartbreaking words of resentments that you have told me
when you said goodbye.
But you see,
my lips still recite your name
every time your images
in my head fly
My dearest old friend,
do remember your old friend sometimes,
and remember me when
the Spring season comes by.
I promise to love you
just like those old times
and always keep you in my bead prayers,
like I did in those old caring days
that so quickly went by.
