Peace, one and all…
A beautiful poem set to wonderful music. Enjoy and may your day be blessed.
By the eternal light of this goblet
what can I do if I do not remove
the darkness of false virtue from my own self?
By such a flame
what can I do if I do not light up
the endless darkness of this night?
If there is something in the treasury of my heart,
it is my passion, my fervor for you, so with such a balm
what can I do if I do not cure the wound of love?
My loved ones have gone away on the grim reaper’s caravan.
O death, please take me to my loved ones
so that I might not be left behind.
Now that the beloved postpones her sight
to the Day of Resurrection,
what can I do if do not mourn until the promised day?
