I felt instantly
I aspired to reach your heart with great love,
hoped you would reciprocate with equal love.
A long way we have accompanied each other,
could we really make out how much we love?
You did not come out of your veil to reveal;
A novice, I failed to reach the depth of your love.
I wondered for a very long time to get answer,
but could not find the ways and means of love;
At times I knew how alone you could be without me,
still something or other always hindered our love.
I did not dare to imagine how crooks could treat you
if I would not be around to help you with all my love.
The other day you cried saying, I failed to see
the deep inside of your treasure chest of love.
I felt it at that moment instantly
how I kept shut the door of love!
I knew in a flash how ego came on the way
to feel and enjoy the true pleasure of love.
Now I find only one heart, not two anymore;
neither mine, nor yours, but one made of love.
