THE SONG OF PARTING
 
Today is a wonderful moment of autumn,
The weather is cool, I closed the door.
 
Now the sunlight will not enter,
But your love will not fade in the heart…
 
Loyalty flew away is like a bird,
A moment of meeting is like an instant dream.
 
Now the sunlight will not appear,
But your kindness will not fade in the soul…
 
I watched through the window,
The night began, as if hope were gone.
 
Now the sunlight will not enter,
But your memory does not evanesce from the heart…
 
The narration of the love is almost over,
But the pain of parting does not end.
 
Our book is closed early,
I will always live with your memory.
 
 
I WANTED TO SEE
 
The leaves of longing fell like mulberries,
My beloved, I wanted to see you today.
My body bent over because of a grief of separation,
My beloved, I wanted to see you today.
 
Where can I go to escape fate?
Time is running hurriedly as a wind.
My enlightened feelings overflow in my heart,
My beloved, I wanted to see you today.
 
While singing in dream the song of meeting,
I live thinking of you day and night.
While expressing my torments to my soul,
My beloved, I wanted to see you today.
 
Oh, the roads that enfettered by parting are far away,
My poem is my word of truth, my intention is sincere,
I am Umida, my hope is only you,
My beloved, I wanted to see you today.
