You live inside my heart; in there are secrets about Youby Mansur al- Hallaj
English version by Paul Smith
Original Language Arabic
You live inside my heart; in there are secrets about You:
Your house is good; no, good is the One found by You!
The only secret in there is You, there's no other I know:
with Your Vision look, other than You is one there too?
Whether the night of separation should be short or long,
my closest friend is my hope of You, remembering You.
I'm so happy if it makes You happy to be destroying me
because whatever You choose, My Killer... I choose too!
