I Spent My Life Chasing My Wishes By Hafiz Shirazi

I spent my life chasing my wishes
What benefits fate furnishes?
Whomever to I said I loved you,
Turned to my foe, why my luck ravishes?

عمری ز پی مراد ضایع دارم
وز دور فلک چیست که نافع دارم
با هر که بگفتم که تو را دوست شدم
شد دشمن من وه که چه طالع دارم
