This my hunger
is this the food?
To come into your life?
Why do i feel like
You are my destination?
I don’t know what is happening
Even in the afternoon
I see the moon
And its you
like Simi’s beautiful voice
which gives my heart warmth
Like the morning
of a night rain
You give me soothness
like the destination of a traveler
You give me comfort

if the ocean and sea
were to go into my belly
if every single food on earth
were to go into my belly
i would still be hungry

like rain which drenches everything
i have found a single food
i have found someone

like a traveler
who finds his destination
like the voice of SImi
when she sings
like the morning
of a night rain
you give me soothness
you are my comfort
my home!


Dust I was, floating in air,
Given an identity by Creator’s Care.

Flying seed I was, craving for land,

Given a golden ground by His Guidance.

Fake glitters charmed me too,

Devilish desires harmed me too,

Unbridled freedom marred me too,

Weak intentions charred me too.

But the vanity clouds washed off in tears,

As if from a lion’s jaw, escaped a deer.

As if a person got free from worldly prison,

And the light of his soul passed through a prism.

Quest is best for the determined soul,

Is the first one to reach its goal.

Guidance dawns upon those who find,

And don’t let their eyes go blind.

What are we but creations at test,

Oft who ignore what’s best.

The invisible enemy attacks from all sides,

And in dark hearts it cozily resides.

Yet Allah’s doors of Mercy are open to all,

Ask for His Help and be saved from fall.

Nature’s at your service as an Emblem of His Love,

And His Throne rests high above.
