OH SPIRIT OF LOVE
Oh spirit of love!
Why have you chosen to punish me this way?
why have you taken my love from me?
Why have you smitten my beloved at war
And sending his piece to me
Tell me where you've taken my beloved
So I may seek him
For I have waited years for my beloved to return home
To fling my arms in the open air as I embrace him
I wanted to receive my beloved with the warmth of my arms
To be smothered with the kisses of my beloved
But where are those kisses of my beloved?
Where is my passionate lover,death has snatched from me
His loving care with sensation
His rare love which could not be bargained
A fabulous lover I had valued all my life
His black curly long hair I loved to bury my face in
His heart I have stolen and kept only for myself
Bring me back my love, so I may nurse my broken heart in frames
For though I value life
Death fascinate my soul now
Hear my million cries oh spirit of lovand bring my beloved back to me.
