I seek not a robe of glittering pearls and rubies shinning bright
Give me a modest dress only not shorter than my height
A handcuff, a collar or may be, a shackle heavy and tough
The adornment for me should compliment the stature of my love
My foe wishes to improve his stature or he wants me dead?
Does he seek my turban of glory or he seeks my head?
A pickaxe in my hand I have and fervour of love in heart
Do not fail me, O tough rock! Stream of milk* start
The treasure of ideals and vision aren’t on trees to pluck
For wealth of sensitivity, anguish and pain, one would need my luck
Seeing human sufferings, Yamin, causes torments and pains
Put me in the cosy arms of sleep, where peace and serenity reigns
* Reference to legendary Asian lovers Shireen & Farhad. Farhad dug a rock to start the
stream of milk for the sake of his love.
