Tell me why you have failed to come here;

Like the froth of silence that could not

Embrace the shore, retreating with its

Lost liveliness, though longing for it.

The moon is shining till the early morn,

As the emission of the night, in despair.

I waited for you, in the tower

Haunted by the cooing doves.

The eternal clusters of stars were

Smouldering through midnight

In tune with my frustrations.

The strings of my heart were straining

As the nightingale sang a strain.

Won’t you come near the window,

Drawing the curtains away

And sing to me secretly?

A song to revitalize; a song to resurrect me

From the rancid grave of miseries.

Come gliding through the breeze;

Shower on me your love for ever

As a dazzling rainbow of dreams…

My longings stand like trees on

The wayside, giving shelter and shade

To the passers by from the scorching heat.
