So Near So Distant - Poem by Sadiqullah Khan

The day I loved thee
The day I have forgone my will
To the whole world I turned my back
My face towards thee
I am all praise for thy beauty
Like a devout wanderer in search of self
In ultimate destiny finds the goddess
The goddess of love
And the last sighs for a kiss divine
Put the hemlock of thy love aside
Killer art thou for in search of myself
Drunk am I from the bounties of thy love
Hold me dear for I am the reflection
In the mirror of thy beauty
Deep in my heart a desire springeth
Like falcon I have wings to fly into distance
In thy remembrance in my dreams my love
When I woke tears flowing down my eyes
One moment of bliss I wish
For the holy waters of thy presence
I shall drink like wine
For thousands years my yearnings
Thou respondeth yet thou art
So near and so distant
