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.
