Ah! She told me !

Ah! She told me!
By :
Essam Badr
An Egyptian poet and journalist.
Translated by :
Hassan Hegazy Hassan


 Come to me,
Stretch your hands and get me out
From the longing and give me life.

 Come to me,
And Visit my roses that weep from
 the length of abandonment on the branch
 Longing for your dew.

Come to me,
And read what my eyes bear from passion,
From yearning, from dalliance
And embrace a volcano of passion.

Come to me,
Take whatever you desire
 From my fondness,
burn, And take my lips to
Trembling and longing for the sip
From your kiss.

Come to me,
 Take my concern, the length of the night
 Has filled me with fright,
And this silence made me scream,
 And this dumb loneliness refuses
  to release me.

Come to me,
I have ignited my fire, lit my lamp
and dropped the curtains,
And have just finished my perfume
 And made what I love from the night
 To sleep on my back

Come and save me from the revolutions,
desires and melting,
Do not ignore my calls,
 Only you, the lover of my soul
 Whom I have given my key.
Please, do come to me.
