Love Song


A very poor rendering of a poem in Urdu someone once lent and translated for me. I have tried to add my own rendition of that thought. The premise is not original, but the words come from my heart and are original and devoted to Erika, like I am.

Everyone is able to love in life, nothing new there,
I will love you, my life, through eternity.

It was only when I found you that I realised
That my life is too short to love you as you should be loved.
What little right my short lived breath has on my life,
I have reserved that last dying breath for you.
I will live for you, die for you,
I will love you, my life, through eternity.

I have ensconced you, like a drumbeat, in my heart
To make a symphony of my emotions for you,
For how can I even think of separating from you
When I have stolen you for me from fate itself?
I will be the protector of our love, my love,
I will love you, my life, through eternity.

Your every footfall lights lanterns in my mind,
When I see you, I see magic in the air.
When I touch you, sense you, scent you,
I sense and scent you in myself for hours.
You are the wellspring of spring, my love,
I will love you, my life, through eternity.
