There Is Another Dream

There is another sky
of brighter days
where empty heart has its fill,
where another beauty glimmers
on the blades of grasses.

Another sunshine shoots its arrows
through the clouds of a new sky.
never mind my faded dreams,
never mind my walls of darkness,
I have cherished a valley of champak
with its maddening tang of forgotten years,
alluring charm of a night.

In this valley of unfading flowers,
an illusion of a reality far more real than you
and me ! Come here, come slowly with shuffling
footsteps, glide to this cottage of dream.
Raise the lamp to see my face of exquisite thirst.
Let your kisses fall upon my soul!
