A Faint Smile

A faint smile on my face, all I desire is to die
All the time and and on every occasion, I feel I’m about to cry
Words were not good enough, all the efforts went in vain
These Peopl, so rigidly conservative in their views, no one notices this pain
I have had so many dreams, for you, for me
Your words drowned them like a pearl, forever lost in the sea
Now that you are going to leave, I’m not yet able to believe
May be this is what people are meant for, may be they all come to deceive
I’ll live for you for I had dreamt of us
I’ll die for you for I had prayed for us

This isn’t going to be smooth, I know I’ll have to suffer
May be that is what I was born for, may be that is I’m here for
Our hearts were together though bodies too far
Your memories are still fresh in my mind, my heart bears your scars
I’m tired of pain, my moon is fading into a dark sky
I have no more desires, no wings to fly
O my soul, sleep now, this will make time slip more quickly
O my beloved, why aren’t you here ,come participate in my funeral ,
For this will help me to die peacefully .

PS : I’ll miss you in heaven
