You And Nightingale

Ehsan Sehgal

I know you are
A patient person
But also the anger
Always stays
on your nose's tip
You are not a stupid
You are a wise
And wonderful
Beloved like a fragrance
Of the rose
Whom I want to touch
Whom I want to kiss
Whom I want to hold
In my arms
In affectionate feelings
To let you feel
The real and true
Essence of love
I become
As a Bulbul, a nightingale
The prisoner
Of your love cage
Singing the songs
Of passion for you.
