The bee flies away flies away
Again back it comes back it comes
Then, only then the flower blooms.
The bud wants to break but it stops
It is shy, it is afraid.
Forget your ego forget your self
Give her all that you have
Stay by her side always.
When it seems it is hopeless
Don't give up your hope to get
The jewel you value most.
Come, come my friend don't wait
The flower has blossomed
The air is heavy with its scent
Drenched by night dew it is bent.
