	By Grish Davtian

	In my quest
	You are pictured
	In line and curve...
	Line and curve...
	Line and curve...

	You are a shadow;
	In the softness
	I plunge...
	I plunge...
	I plunge...

	You like it to be
	Gently light,
	To see my paleness,
	Gently light...

	The purple of the evening
	Extends before me
	Like your arms,
	In purple,
	In purple...

	Save me
	So that I may believe in future,
	In my devotion...
	My devotion...
	My devotion...

	The lane bends
	And crosses over
	The little bridge.

	Let us walk together,
	Cross the bridge,
	And go away...
	Far away...
