Èn maranththai?

Naan ennei Vida unnai than kadaliththen 

Ennei vida unnaithan kavaniththen 

Ennei vida unnaithan arvaniththen 

Ithu ellawattrayum oru nodiyil Maranthuvittaye Èn???

Naan ellorayum vida unnaithane nesiththen

Ellorayum vida unnaithane ethirpaththen

Ellavatrayum vida unnaithane padukaththen.

Ore oru nodiyil ellawattrayum 

Muttrilum Maranthuvittaye Èn..?


Why did you forget?

I loved you more than me

Cared for more than me

Consoled you more than me

You forgot all of these in just a second.. WHY?

My effection towards you was more than the others

My expectations towards you was more than the others

My protectiveness towards you was more than the others .

But still ,you entirely forgot about everything in just a second…WHY?

*My very first take on Tamil poetry.Might not sound so well or grammatically perfect since I haven’t mastered the literal side of it as yet.I’m Just an amateur with a bit of fluency in speaking, reading  and understanding.. Pardon me if there’s any grammatical errors with the poem as well as the translation.

  1. Nice poem mam
    Unn netri muthathil
    Oru nodi pozhudhum alagai thondriyadhe
    Enn vaalnaal muzhudhum udan irupai
    Ena edhir nokki kaathirundhene
    Anaithaiyayum poiyakki
    Oru nodiyil vittu selvai
    Ena ariyamal ponene
