Rabi’a Basri

Lord, another night passes, another day comes:
have I spent the night well so I can gain,
or… please tell me, have I only been wasting it,
so that now I’ll mourn for my loss, once again?
I swear, since that day You gave me new life…
You became my Friend, yet sleep I don’t attain.
And if You sendf me away I swear we won’t be
apart because in my heart You live, You reign!
