i have loved you for a 1000 years.

I seem to have loved you in numberless forms, numberless times…

In life after life, in age after age, forever.
My spellbound heart has made and remade the necklace of songs,
That you take as a gift, wear round your neck in your many forms,
In life after life, in age after age, forever.

Whenever I hear old chronicles of love, its age-old pain,
Its ancient tale of being apart or together.
As I stare on and on into the past, in the end you emerge,
Clad in the light of a pole-star piercing the darkness of time:
You become an image of what is remembered forever.

You and I have floated here on the stream that brings from the fount.
At the heart of time, love of one for another.
We have played along side millions of lovers, shared in the same
Shy sweetness of meeting, the same distressful tears of farewell-
Old love but in shapes that renew and renew forever.

Today it is heaped at your feet, it has found its end in you
The love of all man’s days both past and forever:
Universal joy, universal sorrow, universal life.
The memories of all loves merging with this one love of ours –
And the songs of every poet past and forever.

ஏன் இதயம் உடைத்தாய் நொறுங்கவே? என் மறு இதயம் தருவேன் நீ உடைக்கவே : yen ithayam udaithai norungave? en maru ithayam tharuveyn nee udaikave*

… such is the realized beauty of being in love – shatter me again, just for me to keep wanting many more moments with you.

blessed, i am… because of you. blessed i am to have realized this love from you.

IF, you could walk pass me one more time – என் வாசல் தாண்டி போனாளே : en vaasal thaandi ponaale* to get me breathless at every sight and lost at every thought …to live and to have lived – வாழ்வுக்கும் பக்கம் வந்தேன், சாவுக்கும் பக்கம் நின்றேன் : vaazhvukkum pakkam vanthaen, saavukkum pakkam nindraen* in this perfect love – பட்டு பூச்சி வந்தாச்சா? மேகம் உன்னை தொட்டாச்சா? : pattupoochi vanthachaa? megam unnai thottaachaa?*

and …hear my love calling out to you: i take a step, you take a step – walk with me.

p.s. it is starting to feel odd to tag so many of you in here, i know this is purely a ‘love affair’ but the writer couldn’t resist but to spread the magic with everyone else! 😉 and, if you haven’t realized – click “hear my love” to hear the entire song …one more time!

tagged in no priority order! nevertheless, blessed I am to have crossed paths with all of you – tagged or untagged 🙂
