The memories stay,
Waving in mind
The heart keeps you
Hiding somewhere

My love is a devoted deposit
For a stranger
I determine to pledge it honestly
Throughout my life

I realize the conduct of winds
Even though
I light the candle
On the tent of dreams and hopes

I stay silent,
Even on the bitter talks
Since I care and stand firm,
To Follow the etiquette

Oh, my heart
Look at my patience's approach,
For seclusion
Eyes hold in itself, its tears

Life could forget
Pain and grief of loneliness
I have built the connection
With the memories of you

Since the burden of criticism
I carry and bear on my shoulders
Oh, oppressed-thinker, be positive
Vision is becoming a diamond.
