"As if time has fallen
somewhere from the abode of clock
As if light gets separated
As if someone steals melody
out of song and poem
The same way half,
incomplete, I am without you"
"Whose face is this
that I see in every flower
Whose voice is this that I
hear even when I am not listening
What sort of footsteps are
these that approach?
What sort of dreams are
My heart, tell me, who is
Why is the breeze singing
in such a manner?"
"Without you every
moment was lonely
There was thirst on the
lips all the time
There was no aim, there
were no dreams,
There was vagrancy in life
You are my guide
My destination, my path
You are like a gift from
God for me"
