POEM OF THE DAY: The One

by Rahman Baba (1653 – 1711).

 

The One

 

If for a soul-mate you dream,

See past the alluring fashion of her dress.

 

The vision of such flowing hair

Entwines around the heart, but

Constricts and squeezes out the one it treasures most.            5

 

Instead, follow the creator of this world;

Who fashioned each soul from love,

And made passion the highest goal.

 

The time to start the quest is now.

There is no second chance                                                              10

To embrace the joy, the pain,

Of the one

Who longs

For you.
