I myself have lost me on unknown day,
While I was accumulating years on my way,
I did not realize then that we might separate,
I thought We were together,
And would remain to each other
To taste flavors of our same fate,
To celebrate,
Passing of Days and nights,
delicious light of the day,
And years sway
Between love and hate,
Suddenly, he disappeared,
While I was walking about alone in my life,
Desperate, tired, losing without strife;
Surrendering to those I feared.

Once I saw my face in a flower,
Then he folded himself and vanished forever,
After that day, from nowhere,
With infecting care,
He breathed into my ear,
With a rare anger,
‘ you are aging like lifeless stones,
Fumes of man living on invisible bones,’
Then he melted in the atmosphere,
Ever since I have myself been looking for me,
In the streets, where I used to wander,
And few other places I hardly now remember,
Where I last saw him, who I m not him; but once he was me;
When I was younger.
