Eternal Love 

You probably remember on a rainy day, 
Our paths crossed for the first time. 
Raindrops soaked us,
Our love started from that day! 

We used to meet on that street every day. 
There would be no anger, no sadness, 
We thought that fate, our luck, 
Smile at us, eternal love! 

What happened in between remains a mystery. 
Who said what, took the blame, 
Doubt and fear struck our loving hearts, 
Alas, eternal love is damaged! 

We met again on that street, 
At that time, at that promise, 
The eyes are looking at the ground, in sadness, 
See, eternal love did not endure! 

We parted in the age of insatiable youth, 
We wrote a new epic in the garden of love, 
He lives in a dream, in a floating mirage, 
Eternal love that enchants us!
