song by Firoza begum, posted and translated by ranu

Your eyes full of water ,

Your border veil  stuffed with flowers,

Alas which  shall I choose,

My mind is anxious!

If I take the flowers,

The tears will vanish.

If I take your sobs

The flowers won’t blossom.

Watching you thread the garland,

Arouses my feeling of receiving it,

I love more when you weep in my absence,

I am afraid to lose you,

this is why I stay aloof,

My aim is to help you bloom,

and then leave,

My dear restless nightingale!

………………………………. 🙂
