The reason I fell for you
Most of the girls whom I have seen
Try to trap guys with a subtle ploy;
They would use every kind of screen,
Brazen one moment, the next, coy.
You’re the first girl I have known
Who didn’t stoop to tricks;
You have a charm your very own —
You have no faults that make one sick.
That’s the reason I fell for you —
I, who escaped a dozen snares;
So this time the feeling is true:
It’s of false feelings that I’m scared.
It was fate, it had to happen —
There you were, a delicate flow’r,
Your heart showing, petals open —
And I was captured by its pow’r.
A honey-bird drawn to a bloom,
I could not but obey your call,
Drunk on the wine of your perfume:
For once, eager to be in thrall.
Innocence outweighs all knowledge:
You can’t do wrong, of that I’m sure;
You’ve made me turn to a new page —
My love for you has made me pure.
