Sung in mother’s bosom
The newly born
Rests in warm embrace,
Listening to mother’s heart beat
Love takes another form
In the friendship of mates,
Eating, playing and fighting,
Childhood moves on to youth,
The irresistible attraction
Of the opposite sexes,
Brings a fiery love
Through tempestuous adulthood.
This melts into paternal love
Losing sleep when a child is sick
Untold pleasure in his achievements,
And anxiety in his misfortunes.

Seeking pleasures when pleasure recedes,
And love gets colder by the day.
Inexorably moving towards the end
The ultimate love lies ahead.
But through changing seasons,
