She came at dawn – that heart-taker of fevered lovers.
She said, “Oh heavy load on my thoughts!
Shame on you! I look in your direction,
but you’ve turned your eyes toward others!”
We’ve run in love’s path all our life,
we’ve tried hard for union all our life.
A glimpse of Your image is better for the gaze
than the beauty of all beauties all our life.
– Jami` in his Lawa’ih
