The dancing hues have faded from the skyline
Will the disappeared evenings
Come back alive?
Will the birds that have flown away from the sky
Loneliness is killing me
And in the lighted wick
Like a blossoming flower
The flickering flame still stands.
The whispering sound of footsteps
Of the changing seasons is still heard.
By fondling the feathers of memory
I am still waiting for you dear
Looking at the blank alleyway
With my eyes wide open.
The crystal glass of time of youth
And that of life has broken off
And the wine in it has spilled and is flowing off,
With this useless life that is disappearing from me
Why I should live in this island of pearls?

This song can be a tribute to the old age feelings of a man for his departed partner.
Kudos to ONV for his lyric in Malayalam “ NIRangaL than nritham ozhinjoree maNNil”
