Seeing, as I stand in my cherished place
Thinking, as time passed everything changed


Once, there were chirping birds
Once, there, butterflies fluttered


The breeze touched my skin, tranquillizing my soul
That feeling was best of all


As the green leaves of the tree,
Danced in that breeze


There were carpets of green grass
With shining morning dew, like shining stars


Gazing constantly, the open blue sky
Was the best part of my life


Residing only in my memory now, a dreamland
Lost in forgotten sands


No birds chirp anymore
No butterflies flutter anymore


The breeze can’t tranquillize me anymore
Mesmerizing beauty, I can’t see anymore


Standing in that place alone
Everything is barren, I see
Everything has gone
