What gift can I give her in token of my love?
It should be something most women think of!
Something like a book, a perfume, or a rose.
She can read the book wherever she goes.
Let me give you some advice
Take it, leave it but be nice
If you take it, you will pass
If you leave it, you may pass
My life in Madinah has been a great blessing,
It is the very place I will be greatly missing.
I've known some good fellows,
I wonder why they lie!
And seek to justify!
They know we know they lie.
We know they can't deny.
Near my longing heart she lives,
I can't be safe ere love she gives,
When I want to be closely near her,
When I advance in both her love and care,
My students adore Google so much.
They take it for magic or Midas' touch
I show them how it translates,
And beg to follow my dictates.
We come to life with no great aim,
But step by step, our souls flame.
We crawl before we learn to walk.
We babble before we learn to talk.
Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Please do and let me have my say.
Thou art more lovely and more temperate.
Wake up in the morning,
See your parents frowning.
