My Beloved, don't be heartless with me

by Abu-Said Abil-Kheir

English version by Vraje Abramian
Original Language Persian/Farsi

My Beloved, don't be heartless with me.
Your Presence is my only cure.
How can I be left with neither a heart, nor my Beloved?
Either return my heart, or do not deny me
Your Presence.
