What Was By Ala Al-Dawla Simnani

What Was by Ala al-Dawla Simnani

English version by David and Sabrineh Fideler
Original Language Persian/Farsi

Once I was here,
but now “I” am not:
If there’s really a “me,”
it could only be you.
If any robe warms
and encompasses me now,
that very robe —
it could only be you.
In the way of your love,
nothing was left —
neither body nor soul.
If I have any body —
If I have any soul —
then, without question,
it could only be you.
