Why in carelessness did I hurt

Why in carelessness did I hurt,

O beloved floret, while I carry

you in my hands and slowly walk

this path to the dusk of my life?

Why in silence did you beg

not to ask you any reason

for those fragile tear drops

you hid in your smile?


In this journey where I decay

with every step of my sinful legs,

it is your heart alone that I hold

close to mine. I keep beseeching in every

name of the god I know for another

birth as your master who would –

can keep you in castle of happiness.


If even a drop of tear from your eyes

was because of this wandering beggar,

let me be stoned to death by

the guardians of the time and ages

for I couldn’t take care of their gift to me.
