Inside that garden, I beheld thee
I shed some tears all alone
I could do nothing but stare at you
At some time, I approached you
You were standing there motionless,
You knew that I loved you,
You knew that I adored you.
Under that fruitless tree I was sitting,
You sat next to me,
I froze, my heart beat swiftly,
Your love sparkles in my heart
I could feel it deep inside
Where no one could notice this but you.
It made me move, I embraced you
I tightly embraced you,
Like the sun would warmly embrace the universe,
I knew that I strongly loved you,
You held my cold hands,
But I tried to pick an apple for you,
I later realized that the tree was barren.
A moment of silence prevailed,
Still, that spark of love was always in my heart.
Each time I felt your love I deeply sighed,
You were my abode,
My heart belonged to thee.
Words may fail me,
But my heart shall never stop loving thee.
I later realized that this love was lopsided,
That entire story happened in the garden of that house.
