OH DESERT WIND
Oh desert wind, cradle my sorrows,
You are a relief to my scars and delight of my eyes...
Deliverance with its heady veil of fragrance
Step by step, I create new curlicues on the opulent sand carpet
Touched with the blush of dawn...
Oh desert wind, caress his hair while he is in the realm of slumber
Guard his dreams, soft like rose petals,
Seal his lips with a blissful desire
Shield him with prayers and scatter his grief
Oh desert wind, kiss his lashes of the finest silk
Softly, like angels touch our reveries
If he smiles, my heart will rejoice
And sparkle like a placer of diamonds...
