Murshida 2

For a moment, walking hand in hand

I felt we ceased to be.

Passers-by saw not two, but one.

 

Friend,

For a moment,  my love for you

Was no more, for I was not;

For a moment,  even you were not;

For a moment,  what remained

Was love without an owner,

Without a source, without an object.

For a moment, what remained

Was all that really is,

For a moment.

 

My friend, when this had passed,

I felt the touch of your hand

And we were smiling

In a still, warm day.
