Commitment to Love


Don't you give up on my love
for my commitment to love is immortal!
The candle flame casts a shadow on the wall.
For years the shadow has stayed in the same place.
The burning flame gives life to the shadow's face.
Shadow's commitment to love is immortal!
You are my candle flame and I am your shadow.
I live since there is light in your being.
For my commitment to love is immortal!

A moth crawls on the wall.
Scared of fears, disheveled by apprehensions.
Believes that the edges of the shadow
are the boundaries of life and death for it!
Yes, same is true for the desires of my heart.
Even then, don't you give up on love.
For my commitment to love is immortal!

Yes, my commitment to love is immortal.
Life is neither sunshine nor sandy riverbanks for them.
Even if crocodiles bask in the sun on sandy riverbanks,
their bond with the depths of the river is unbreakable.
The intoxication of their being brings them to the shore.
And then there is a sense of relief on the sands as well!
I too like intoxicated crocodiles,
disturbed by the turbulence of my emotions,
feel the urges to seek luxuries and pleasure.
And instead of simply worshiping you,
yearn for the ecstasy of your embrace's treasure.
Even then, don't think that my feelings for you are worthless,
and don't give up on my love.
For my commitment to love is immortal!
