Longing For The Beloved - al-Seyyid Mehr Ali (Allah bless his grave)

"My yearning for the loved one has intensified; why is my heart so very sad today?

Love has permeated every tissue of my body. Why are my eyes shedding a shower of tears (due to separation) ?

Glorified be Allah, Who created thee (O Prophet) in the most beautiful, the best, and the most perfect mold in every respect;

Who is (the humble) Meher Ali to chant thy praises; what heights have his impudent eyes ventured to reach?"
