நீ இருந்தால்...

நீ இருந்தால்;
யாரில்லையேனும் குறையில்லை.

நீ இல்லையேல்;
யாரிருந்தும்
பயனில்லை.

Translation
When you are with me;
It doesn’t matter if there is no one around.

If not;
Presence of others would not ever matter.

PS: I have tried to make a good translation. I am sure that the essence is captured. But the beautiful wordplay is amiss I guess.

  1. Rhyming is there in Tamil! It cannot come in translation! Very nice!

  2. Beautiful poem. After reading this, I also got an inspiration to write something like yours. But I can only come up with this.

    நீ இருந்தால்
    கடன் வாங்க தடையில்லை

    நீ இல்லையேல்
    கடன் கொடுக்க
    ஆளில்லை
