DIVINE LOVE: 

One night, desperate Majnun prayed tearfully,
‘O Lord of mine who has abandoned me,
Why have you “Majnun” called me? 
Why have you made a lover of Leila out of me?
You have made me a pillow of wild thorns,
Made me roam day and night without a home.
What do you want from my imprisonment?
O Lord of mine, listen to my plea!’

The Lord replied, ‘O lost man,
With Leila’s love I have your heart filled;
Your love of Leila is my will.
The beauty of Leila that you see
Is just another reflection of me.' 

- Nizami
