TELL ME SWEETHEART!!
With you has gone the sweet spring,
Wintry ice has trapped my whole being.
Since no more I am your dream king,
Life for me has lost its real meaning.
Tell me now sweety, how can I sing?
With a broken lyre with snapped string,
Amidst gloom in agony, yet l try to sing-
Those sweet songs once you taught me.
But the sentry of heart in sheer agony
Refuses to open the door of your memory.
Tell me sweetheart just once, tell me how
With broken heart how can I sing now?
