Love & Fear 1438/2016

I’m too afraid
To even whisper his name
أحيا اسمه
For fear
 في هوى البدر التمام
That the trembling of my lips
And tremor in my voice
Would expose the rapture
فحان حمامي
Of his memory
يانور الوجود
Traversing my veins
بشرى لنا
And softly inscribed
نلنا المنى
In the pulsating
دوم تك تك دوم تك
Heartbeats so loud
دوم تك تك دوم تك
Chest bursting
طالما أشكو غرامي
Unable to bear it
يا عذولي
I would beg
لا تلمني
I would plead
مدد يا مدد
خذ بيدي
أبان مولده
Whereby the watchmen
فكيف تنكر حبا بعد ما شَهِدت؟
Issue their warrant
فكيف تنكر حبا بعد ما شَهِدت؟
To cage this madness
I’ve tried
So hard
عدتك حالي
To protect

اللهم صل وسلم وبارك عليه وعلى آله
