In the silence of streets,
Which were filled with the children;
Dancing, running and jumping.
In the empty roads,
With a couple of motors running;
I am leaving you,
Oh my City.
There is a flood of emotions,
Flowing within the walls of my body;
Striking against my chest,
Trying to break the barrage.
I wish I could stay more.
I wish I could hold on.
Sit in my back yard where;
I used to hide, from everyone.
But the place which took me in its bosom,
Doesn’t enthralls me anymore.
It has been quite for so many years that,
Now it likes being that way;
Serene and silent and deserted.
In the long reticent roads of life,
Where did we leave our favorite turns?
We don’t know.
Somebody take me back;
To the streets full of children,
To the roads full of traffic,
In my backyard, where I could hide from the eccentricity of time.
