Like an oasis in the desert
Like cool breeze in hot summers

Like a thousand roses in full bloom
Like a swish of sweet perfume
Like a pure drop of dew
Like a flower bud new

Like innocent chirping of birds
Like tiny bells of cattle heard

Are my innocent feelings for you
For pure love gives life a rosy hue!
