As Long as I Liveby Ayn al-Qozat Hamadani
English version by Andrew Harvey
Original Language Persian/Farsi
As long as I live I will eat and drink
The grief of loving You.
I will never give it up to anyone
Even when I am dead.
At the Resurrection
I will walk forward with this violent thirst
Still storming my head.
