I remember you when there’s spring
I remember you when the birds sing.
I remember you when I hear chattering of a brook
I remember you when at tulips I look.
I remember you when I am alone.
I remember you when I look at the moon.
You came in my life as spring
My heart joyfully began to sing.
I forgot sorrows when you called me in a soothing Voice
And when you laughed, produced ringing sound that echoed thrice.
You spent little time with me like a tulip flower
Though it shows itself to me yearly, you left for ever.
Now I am alone but often your memories accompany me
Which don’t give me a joy but only cause anxiety.
I thought you were my moon in my each dark hour
Since you left me, the darkness from my life doesn’t go away ever.
