Oppressed with grief, i have endured in silence
 
Oppressed with grief, I have endured in silence
I made my mind, I’ll never get back to you
Let your crying eyes flow onto my bosom
I am the one who will put up with this love
Why have you gone off before this love dies down
You have just deprived me of you in this land
While I was going through a difficult patch
You have just forced me to bid farewell to you
The autumn has been blowing over my head
My heart sore never ceases giving me pain
It has just occurred to me that life rolls on
You have just forced me to bid farewell to you
They would know better who suffer from the world
Ah, how could I share my sorrow with anyone
I would be feeling ashamed if I lament
Ah, how I would be enduring this longing.
 
 
 
I loved you so much that
this love can only be over by death
 
I loved you so much throughout my life
This love can only be over by death
You too loved me as much
This love can only be over by death
I lost my heart to you
I never backed down loving you
I devoted my life for your love
I never regretted loving you
We have never feared the dead of winter
We have toiled so much for our love
We never backed down loving each other
In the long run we attained our desire
We have passed difficult years in this cruel world
We were not knocked down like a tree
You meant everything to me at my hardest times
We are now as happy as children are.
 
 
 
The pain of love
 
A spring breeze has just blown and gone by here
It has pierced my wounded heart and gone by here
It planted longing inside me and just left
Planted longing inside me and just left
The pain of love does not subside inside me
This unique love burnt everything and gone by
It ruined my sorrowful soul and gone by
It has opened up my old wounds and gone by
The pain of love does not subside inside me
Let a blue star be borne in the sky somewhere
It is worth dying for the sake of this love
Let my heart wear away in the fire of love
The pain of love does not subside inside me.
 
 
 
The years separated u
 
The years separated us
The seasons are without you
Love scar cannot be erased
I’m filled with so much longing
Do not forget about me
Nobody knows my trouble
Long awaited days are near
This life can’t pass without you
Wish our union if you want
Our reunion is a dream
Being apart never ends
I’m filled with so much longing.
 
 
 
Without reason i felt sad
 
Without reason I felt sad
I’m stuck in love, favorless
Without you, days do not pass
Longing has become our point
My soul doesn’t care about love
I had no fine days but you
I don’t love at first glance
Longing has become our point
I have no hidden targets
And no queries, I’m nogo
Possibly ungrateful too
Longing has become our point
My heart keeps aching subtly
I got worse since you have left
Let this torture be over
Longing has become our point
Do you make no never mind
Why are you being silent
All my struggles never end
You are stabbing in my back.
