Poem - Tum

YOU

When you were with me, you were my courage, my hope,

You were a part of my every happiness.

You shared my every sorrow,

You met me at a turning point in life,

Giving up everything, everyone.

I was happy, very happy,

I was free from every sorrow.

Then all of a sudden, this happened.

A tragedy occurred: you went away,

Leaving me on the same path, at that same turn.

Thereafter, I had no news of you, nor could I forget you.

I could neither come nor go.

Now I have nothing but restlessness in my heart,

Pieces of my sweet dreams, sadness, silence, desolation.

Shadows of pain and sadness; my heart desires nothing.

That turn where I met you is gone, and I cannot see the path.
