Pain of love was simply words
His ears heard and eyes read
His mind did seek to understand the secret
But know that this is the tale of the heart
Where the name of the Beloved must be planted
Feelings within the heart arose
Taking the seeker by surprise
What was this feeling that bloomed like a rose
Making his heart pine for Him so?
Why did the seeker's eyes tear by simply thinking His name?
Is this the beginning of a story of Love?
Or simply the revival of a tale forgotten?
Yet in the end it matters not
Not to the seeker nor his Beloved Allah
Save that this tale continues forever
