Poem by: Mahmoud Said Kawash

Oh violetsí lover, come hurriedly and dwell inside me
All that in the heart annoys and causes pain to me

Oh the tattoo of the soul that tortures and exhausts me
Isnít it more than enough for you and me?

Oh life, donít you realise that Iím holding on to you
Through my sanity, madness and nostalgia!!

Donít you see that Iím sailing as a boat in a rough sea
Lost in futility of sorrows, searching for you

To become happy, enjoying the flames of love
Which burns me and enriches me with its warmth

Oh love, oh, oh and oh
Is it loveī-or-a special form of madness!!

Oh violetsí lover, listen well to understand me
And to take me to a place of peace and tranquility

I got bored of everything in this universe, except you
O king of feelings, o pure of heart, o tenderhearted one

Please come as quickly as you can
Come to accompany me to the altar of love
Where we pray and reveal our hidden emotions

Oh violetsí lover, to whom I vowed all my lifetime
Your prison is different from all prisons
Yes, it is surely different from all other prisons.

All the roses and blossoms are gifts for you
The blue sea and green land are at your command
The ebbs and tides calm down for a look of your eyes
Everything in the universe is at your order
All are to you with all love, you the violetsí lover!!
