Waves that became songs
Should I be happy or furious?
You say you are tied with someone
in the holy nuptial tie and love her,
as she has borne your children.
Then you say you dream of me,
my thoughts keep you awake,
you can’t dream a life without me
I have captured your very soul.
Tell me my well-wishing lover,
what will be my place in your world?
What will your wife, children call me?
What will be the name they will give me?
When I am no longer young
Your passion too will ebb!
Will you give me your wife’s honour?
Will you even stay beside me then?
