Beggar

Methmi Mandara 2007 (Matara)

Oh, my why your eyes are wet?
Eyes are red as sunset
No one feels your sorrow tonight
Wondering where you sleep tonight

How much hunger do you feel?
As to eat a bowl of steel
Asking for money, food and borrow
Why anyone can't see this sorrow

Going on roads in midday sun
Giving love to your only sun
Past life, don't know what you've done
Having some only jam with bun
