Last nite, when my heart burst into a song, You were not by me

So far, my life had been spent in tearful silence and All that I have been longing to tell you,

All my life... came forth then, as if in a sacred burst of melody - Like lightning in the dark

All that time, my dear, You were not anywhere near.

Thought I ...that finally at daybreak, I would sing those words to long last!

The sweet fragrance of flowers wafted in the air, the morning sky was filled with birdsong

But, as hard as I tried then... I could not set those very words to the tune - of the nite before

For the melody never returned, to comply...

When you were nearby.

Rabindranath Tagore
