Your word, you have broken, Kanamma
On hearing it, my heart breaks in fear
With the wind, you have united, Kanamma
On seeing it, my eyes spill their tears

The pages of your story, you turned
And without a word, left at its end
I sit and watch the world while it burns
In the dull flames of pain that the gods send

A translation of Ilayaraja’s Vaarthai Thavarai vittai  from Sethu
