I saw a burning fire on a blessed day
Drowned in evil, the nafs was backing away
But I dragged myself to the one who had been alight
For I knew that fire of love will set me right
So the flame I caught, set me afire
Though tiny it was, it made me aspire
The high ranks of love I aim to reach
And I want the fire to make my soul besieged.
The heat and light of it is so fervent
It gives life to even a heart deadened
What a strange thing it is, this love
Indifferent it makes except from the beloved.
