Farewell, Arwa !

Farewell, Arwa !
Dr.Shaban Abd Elhakim Mohamed
Translated by
Hassan Hegazy Hassan ( Egypt )


Farewell, Arwa!
Farewell, my daughter!
Does farewell look like that?
Do you part in the age of freshness,
blooming and beauty?
My rose has been picked and covered by the dirt
Oh, the mate of my heart!
Oh, my sweetheart!
When I was carrying you to your gloomy grave
And the hot tears were burning my cheeks
The heart was fluttering
The eyes were popping out
The terrible symphony of silence prevailed
Oh, my love!
How terrible was this separation!
Is this how your uncle celebrating your wedding
this evening and chopping a piece
from his liver to bury it in the dust?
I trembled ... fainted and sadly fell down
But when they said that this is not
 the nature of men to wail and cry
  like children, I lost my temper, saying it madly
To lie next to my daughter
How cruel is it!
Separation, loneliness, and desolation!
Do I leave her alone with the solemnity
of the majestic silence and the pain of sadness
Oh, my baby from the last look at you
If only it was the last look at life
To lie beside you
A piece of the heart which is broken
After you, life is no longer life
May God have mercy on you
A flower in its prime age has gone
and separated us
I'm waiting for the meeting on the Day of Judgment
To see you again!
