I Beg for Mercy – Magtymguly Pyragy

I Beg for Mercy
Oh, Allah Almighty, the first thing I beg you for
Is that your mercy be sent down to me.
I wish for a beautiful sweetheart,
With almond-like eyes and apple-like cheeks.
What should I do if Allah doesn’t bestow this?
Where should I head to, which direction go?
I wish for a beauty with brows seeming pencil-drawn
And very ethical in all her actions.
I wish for a beauty who earned her respect,
One who tends for her husband,
One who never expresses her dislike,
One who has a smile on her face instead.
Twenty years have passed since birth,
But I haven’t had any joy in this world,
I wish for a beauty whose words are sweet and whose lips are smiling,
One who is always ready to embrace me.
Magtymguly, your slave, I am here in this world,
I beg for a sweetheart who is smart and clever,
I met an ignoramus, who does not get a hint,
I wish for a beauty who will know my value.
