Union

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
