My heart searched for your fragranceby 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.
