The World as I see it

What is it that you call love?

flower-hd-desktop-wallpaper-attractive O Friend!

What is Emotion? What is Pain? The Love, which you seemingly seek day and night, O Companion! What is it that you call love? Is it but only full of sufferings? Is it but only tears of sorrow? Is it nothing but ocean of grief?

Then why is it, may I know People in joy, aspire for such a pain?

For me, all are joyous All brand new, all pure and clean The blue sky, the green forest Joys and and sorrows, the bud and the flower... All are like me... They all sing, they all dance It is among all the fun and frolic; That they aspire to die. They know no sorrow, neither tears Nor do they ever try to tame the pain...

Flowers fall off smiling Moonlight fades with a grin And full of joy; do the stars Immerse into the ocean of sky!

Who else is as happy as me? Dearest friend come to me... A joyous song of the happy heart Through which, the soul merges with the one.

If you weep each day Never will you meet the joy Never will we forget the grief And together will sing...

What is Emotion? What is Pain? The Love, which you seemingly seek day and night, O Companion! What is it that you call love? Is it but only full of sufferings? Is it but only tears of sorrow? Is it nothing but ocean of grief?
