All Midnight I Suddenly Wake Up


At midnight I suddenly wake up hearing someone's voice
is that you, is that you?
I feel the load of some memory in my breast -
is that you, is that you?
Some one's hungry love roams about seeking aIms
Some one's piteous eyes like the stars in the night-sky
look at the sought-after face - is that you, is that you?
The wind at night carries someone's lingering sigh
And stirs my heart; Oh my distant beloved
is that you, is that you?
Like the ocean-wave whose crying bruises my heart
The nightingale in the wood ceaselessly chirps on the champah tree
is that you, is that you ?

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
