#1 tI vaLarttiDuvOm - Bharatiyar - Requesting Translation

Post by revanthv552 » 02 May 2018, 16:23

I was browsing on the internet and found this beautiful song/poem of Bharatiyar.
I could understand parts of it but I was very intrigued to know the meaning of the entire composition.
Would love to know the meaning in English:

The lyrics from karnatik.com are:

tI vaLarttiDuvOm peru tI vaLarttiDuvOm 1
