Don't ask me for the love I once gave,

My beloved, don't demand that love again.

The streets and lanes where we used to roam,

Are no more the same, don't ask for that love again.

The moments of joy and happiness we shared,

Are long gone now, don't ask for that love again.

The dreams we dreamed together,

Are shattered now, don't ask for that love again.

The promises we made, the vows we took,

Have all been forgotten, don't ask for that love again.

The love that once bloomed in my heart,

Has withered away, don't ask for that love again.

The wounds that were inflicted upon my heart,

Have left their scars, don't ask for that love again.

My beloved, if you want my heart,

I offer it to you, but don't ask for that love again.
