Like the twilight at setting
That throws the crimson rays in front of me
Through The openings of the door
I heard in the corridor
The sound of your footsteps that is sweet and slender.
As if someone who fondles the nerves in my heart
With their finger like the soft breaths
As if the droplets those fall on the leaves
As if the elixir sprayed on life
I heard your vibrating footsteps
That thrilled me without my knowledge.
Like the bee that is humming searching for the flower
That is covered by the dew drops like a veil
And not able to taste the honey,
Not able to understand the meaning
Of the slow chanting sound of your footsteps
I also stood still.
Like the shadows that draw pictures in front of me
You also appeared like another evening.
