Al Hob Teir (الحب طير) (English translation)
Love is a Bird (Rhyming)
Love is a bird; its wings are twain;
One is you, and the other is me
If one breaks, all is in vain;
Our love broken then shall be
Come, now let us fly away,
Think not what the others say!
As long as love is here with us,
Nothing can tempt me to stray!
For love is a bird; its wings are twain!
How many nights I lay awake,
Filled with hope and sweet heartache!
What would I not do for your sake?
You are my life, come what may!
I shall not waste your life or mine
Nor will I torment you or whine;
Our love's wound is no one's crime;
Who knew love brought such dismay?
