As Soon As You Left

As soon as you left… It felt like as if someone stumped me. As if the skies fell down immediately And I’m standing bareheaded underneath hot sun Highly shocked, deeply grieved…so lonely As soon as you left… I forgot to walk As if directions are lost My empty hand needs your finger back So that I can gain what I lack. As soon as you left… My heart is missing its beats As if I’m trying to chase unbreathing breaths Sitting idle like caged bird Surrounded by thousands of empty walls. As soon as you left… The bark of the Hawthorn has begun to grow inside. There are only thorns on every side. There is no shadow, no feeling of compassion, Just thirst is, thirst all around… Excessive thirst. It was you who introduced me to love, Like the moon pours its whitened rays in dark Since you left, so tell me Who will cascade melody with flowing dreams Who will heal my wounds, Who will sing the song of Hearts Dear father, Come back to me I am incomplete without thee Like a candle without flame Like a body without a soul…!!
