My heart searched for your fragrance

by Sarmad

English version by Isaac A. Ezekiel
Original Language Persian/Farsi

My heart searched for your fragrance
     in the breeze moving at dawn,
     my eyes searched for the flower of your face
     in the garden of creation.
Neither could lead me to your abode --
     contemplation alone showed me the way.

-- from Sarmad: Martyr to Love Divine, by Isaac A. Ezekiel
