From Umair

Why is my yearn so strong tonight?

Reminiscing Thy sacred city

Has brought tears to my eyes

And hollowness to my heart!


Standing before Thee

Truly was a great honour,

The utterance of poetry

So beautiful yet so difficult!


The constant thought of Thee

Has driven me insane,

O how we rejoiced upon arrival

But cried rivers upon departure!


Indeed I am patient of love

My cure lies in Thy chamber,

Love is a cruel and painful friend

For it can heal but also wound!


Let us travel again God willing

For I fear I may not return,

If death decides to take me

O Beloved, return to me!
