If only he knows ... [ يا ليته يعلم (Ya laytahu ya3lam) ]
If only he knows ...
Tell the dear, whose dwell is in the depth of (my) heart
that I keep seeing him even when I don't,1
that my eye is attached to seeing him
no matter how far our homes are from each other.
If only he knows that I don't recall him.
How to recall what I don't forget?!
You, who claim2 that I don't remember him
God knows, that I don't forget him3
Even if he's absent, (my) soul is his home
How would the heart forget the soul dweller?
- 1. She means: even if he is absent and I'm not seenig him Physically, I keep recalling his image, his phantom
- 2. Literally: Who is misled, who is fancying
- 3. not for a second. He is always in my mind
