TO MY FRIEND AZAMAT
Watch the destiny’s job,
It exiled the soul to love.
My friend, I couldn’t save my heart,
It left me till the Judgment-Day.
I grow up into fires,
My tracks are also aflame ways.
Watch your fate, my friend,
A love is aflame ways for me too.
Your wishes were happiness, my friend,
A handful of prayer, favours,
They gushed inapposite to soul,
Many prostrates from one soul.
My journeys are dangerous
Over a valley of the fortunate
I have knelt at love’s foot,
Goodbye my friend, until the doomsday.
