Nothing but burning sobs and tears tonight

by Abu-Said Abil-Kheir

English version by Vraje Abramian
Original Language Persian/Farsi

Nothing but burning sobs and tears tonight.
No way out and no patience left.
Last night our hearts had a moment together,
I suppose this is how I have to pay for it!

-- from Nobody, Son of Nobody: Poems of Shaikh Abu-Saeed Abil-Kheir, Translated by Vraje Abramian
