Return me to the heir
Of the olden times
Return me to the moment
Of sympathetic love

Longed for the pages
Of the time past
You opposed the wavy sea current hardly
Never subjugated

Proof of my love to you
Blood and soul is put at stake
Willing to slip
To the grave

The sword of an ancient era
The longing charm of love
The sword of an ancient era
The sole Alip* as the cause of heroic war

*Alip is the first letter of the Arabic character meaning
 “the one and only” in the Tausug proverb.
