When the rose is gone & the garden fadded,

You will no longer hear the nightingales song.

The beloved is all; the lover just a veil,

The beloved is living; the lover a dead thing,

If love withholds its strengthing care,

The lover is left like a bird with no care.

The lover is left like a bird without wings,

How will I be awake & aware,

If the light of the beloved is absent?

Love wills that this word be brought forth.
