    It was the Egyptian Abdulhaleem Hafiz the most popular singer in the Arab countries that time who popularized Nizar lyrics

In The Summer

In the summer
I stretch out on the shore
And think of you
Had I told the sea
What I felt for you,
It would have left its shores,
Its shells,
Its fish,
And followed me.
