Love came and emptied me of selfby Abu-Said Abil-Kheir
English version by Vraje Abramian
Original Language Persian/Farsi
Love came and emptied me of self,
every vein and every pore,
made into a container to be filled by the Beloved.
Of me, only a name is left,
the rest is You my Friend, my Beloved.
