Sorrow

What does life give you in the end but sorrow
Why do love’s good and evil send but sorrow

I have only seen true companion – pain
And I have known no faithful friend but sorrow

Why does my beloved separate from I
and why do I receive not faith but sorrow

Why did we unite and then separate
and why Jimale receive not joy but sorrow

sweet dream

How sweet sleep is! I dreamed I saw

My love last night

And pampered my poor heart with thoughts

Of Past Delight

Hafez

I dream

A day when peace rings from the south to the north of the country

A day of peace, kindness, equality and justice for all

A day when we are one people of one land

A day when foreigners can’t divide and rule us

A day when we are all brothers of one nationA day when the blind man walks from south to north, free of dread

A day when everybody sleeps without scare of being killed, tortured or harassed More

My life is tragedy

This morning when I woke up,
I saw the Blue Ocean and white sandy beaches
But around me there is disorder

No matter how early I rise with the sun
Instead of the birds singing before the day’s begun
Russian revolvers chatter louder and louder

Instead of the promise of the morning air
Shooting, shelling, killing are the days here,
The roads to somewhere blocked everywhere More

Wretched Life

Yeah. Really
I hope you will hear my last plea,

this [terrorizing] isn’t fair,
Writing Blues and my paper dripping
Oozes tears
Every time I get to thinking
Sinking deep down
I’m losing wits! More

I MET MY SUN

The day is dawning,
like a flower blossoming;
it’s the beauty of your skin

When you walk, the world looks on
When you stop, time stops,
When you smile, all the earth would be yours

This morning, from a distance,
I saw you walking away alone,
I came so close, yet you’re so far,
we meet, yet we don’t
