My Star - Poem by Taher Shemaly

In the matter of fact
ladies and gentlemen of honour and fame
My heart glancing shall stop the act
in greeting stand for my star with no blame
Give a way you who listens, up to the last
here comes the star, I dare not say the name

I shall believe heavens are on earth
were revealed in a merciful gift
My eyes shall see evil no more
for my life-long until my soul is in lift
Pray to you O my Lord of Might
keep my star with me, as if night never went

May according to traditions of new and old
flirting is a taboo to be judged for
But who cares O my star of eternal glance
to you my heart I present, or you'd like some more?
Keep it with thee I shall need it no more
as to the grave I might be, calling your name no more
