I loved You.
Why, I did not know then.

You remain intoxicated in innumerable colours
and with these,
You coloured my mind.

These colours,
I was unable to wipe out back then.

I used to cry in a dark house,
thinking I had no one of my own.

From the sky of effulgence
You announced aloud:
"I am here, why fear?"

I forgot that You
do not entertain any suppression of feelings.

I got up during the daylight
and hid my face in the evening.

You held my face with both hands.
You lifted up
and told me:

"I am here,
look at me
and understand me".

But even then,
I failed to recognise You.
