Tayfur Abu Yazid al-Bistami

I have planted love in my heart,
and shall not be distracted until Judgment Day.
You have wounded my heart when You came near me.
My desire grows, my love is bursting.
He has poured me a sip to drink.
He has quickened my heart with the cup of love.
Which He has filled at the ocean of friendship.
