LONGING STRIKES MY CHEST!!
“A dialogue between two lovers”
 
He said to her:
O sweetheart, O magic chant
Who dissolves and scatters in the cup of my youth
Aren’t you caring for my love, O fragrant rose?
Your breathtaking beauty seem bewitching
Longing strikes my chest while you are afar
And the emotion whispers throughout my eyelids
Is there anything to say after this estrangement of both hearts?!
O heart, be quiet and put the pain and blame aside
O heart, the beloved is leading her soldiers to the battlefield of hatred
Do I miscalculate and misunderstand the situation?!
Is it a real estrangement, or seems so because you are another woman?
Good morning and evening my happiness and contentment
 
She replied:
Good morning and evening of longing, emotion and affection
No, no, good morning and evening of real love and life
You talk about estrangement!! How do you suggest that?
How do you delude this estrangement, oh you all love!!
I love you, only you and no other!!
I love you!! Do you understand?
I’m another woman!! Do you understand?
A woman who loves you and can’t live without you
A woman who loves your world
Who can’t be far away from you
Excuse me, I’m another woman!!
Yes, I’m another woman who follows your footsteps
And do more and more!!
I’m a woman who has no life without you
A woman who spends the nights dreaming of you
A woman who hopes to keep warm beside you
Doesn’t stop thinking about you so as not to forget you
Excuse me, I’m another woman!!
A woman who doesn’t speak other than the language of lovers
Your smile makes me mesmerized by the most beautiful looks
A woman who aspires to see you day and night
Excuse me I’m another woman!!
I’m a woman, different from the women of these days,
Fits you as a man different from the men of these days!!
And because I’m a different woman I love you, different man!!
How much do I love you!! Do you understand?
Surely you understand!! I’m sure you understand!!
 
Note: “Another woman” means another sort of women.
