Empty Life

Ehsan Sehgal

I breathe in,
Your body fragrance
Goes inside me
That makes me drunk
I breathe out,
Your body fragrance
Surrounds my all senses.
I am deeply in love
Every breath of me
Sends your name
Chants your beauty
Harps your devotion.
That makes me alive
You are in my dreams
You are in my thoughts
That all feelings
Endorse this
You are my life
You are my happiness
You are my destiny,
Without you
I am nothing
I am empty of life
