Standing outside the closed door of entrance,
Passionately I wait for you, facing many a hindrance,
Having a strongest desire to embrace your bosom;
Unforgettable will the moment be, when you come.
Tears are in my eyes, eagerness in my soul,
Fickleness in my feet to reach ultimate goal;
With the ocean of love, uncontrollable passion,
And with my heavy heart, I beg for your compassion.
Belief I have, in no time will we be one,
The cloudy firmament will be clear and none
Will remain to pierce my tender heart,
When out of the golden door is present my lord.
