They Come to You Like a Cool Breeze

They come to you like a cool breeze
On a sweltering day
Their sweet words and nice manners
Thrust you in the dream
Of a wonderful life ahead;

Your face glows and eyes sparkle
They say you’re most beautiful
Ah! For them you’d been desperate to outshine
Nymphs of heaven

Their thoughts are studded in your mind
Like the gems in a crown:
You dream of beautifying their houses
Enlivening with children their lives

All of a sudden they disappear
You struggle to find what went wrong
You keep your doors open
Hoping they will return

You cherish those nice moments
That have no use for them–
They have set out on journeys afresh
In search of newer travelers

You come to terms with life
And say you won’t trust them again
Ah! From the cool breeze how long can you hide?
