Don’t drift away…


Why are you drifting, Oh! my Heart!
Like the snow white clouds in the sky:
You were firm and strong like a rock,
But now, you’re melting like ice;
From where has this flame leapt up?
With only a flickering candle besides you:
The pain in my heart is killing me,
Not knowing how to escape;
Oh Mind! Don’t drift away,
For the pain and agony, sure
Will drench the path you have chosen,
With tears of blood, of the dear ones!!
