Unyielding behavior of life

And the life-like mountain

Always commove me

Like a boat without a rudder!


Even stones break

When the wind blows and

The river current falls on it

But the inertia of life bothers!


You will forget me one day

My heart is afraid of it

Like sunrays on the sand

Creates antelope mirage!


Even the sound of your anklets scares

And the motionless night is shy of it

Still you call me and break my torpidity

I want to wake up and live in your memories!


The winds have said perhaps

A song crooned by you and me

My heart is melting now

Breaking the inertia of the soul!
