AADAT – Don’t know from when some hopes are still remaining. I still miss you. Why do your remembrances still come to me? Don’t know from when no matter how far you are from me. I am still close to you. Now I am accustomed to live like this. Any hope from life, I have no complains from life as well. Now I am alive in these blue skies. The affection for you is such that it keeps on increasing.
