Darling

Telugu Original: P. Ramakrishna Das

Nestama
Naa sarvaswam
Neeve anukunna kshanam
Silaksharamai
Yugaantam varaku nilichi povaali!
Ee modunu chigurinpa chesina
Nee saannihityam
O chEdu nijamai
Hrudayaaniki gaayam chestoone vundaali!
Nee gyaapakaanni moyalEka
Ne yilaa
Kavitalaa
Karugutoo vundaali
Aashruvunai
Alaa
Varshistoone vundaali.

English Translation : Ch J Satyananda Kumar

Darling
The instant that I construed
you as my everything
should remain
an engraved stone edict
till the end of the epoch.

Your intimacy
which sprouted this dead stump
should remain a bitter truth
gashing my poor heart

Not able to bear the brunt of
your recollections
I should melt away
like a doggerel,
raining tear drops
ever, for ever!
