    O, cameleer please hold on translated lyric

    O, cameleer please hold on translated lyric

    Hello everyone
    I have just translated this loving Arabic lyric
    It is a piece of gold.
    It is a very affecting lyric carrying much passion and torture toward a lover departed and no occasion to say goodbye to him\ her.
    These stories of love which we called ( platonic love ) now such stories are not familiar.
    One still crying a year or all life sad and tortured, is not a part of our tradition nowadays.

    ************

    O, cameleer please hold on
    I have just a gentle reproof with them
    Be kind, I did not say them goodbye
    My soul kept following though my body is me
    What shall I do with life if they depart?
    My eyelids and my heart feel pain
    a lover you drove away I love too much
    not seeing him , I forgot my path
    Patience for my rubbing, O Lord
    He dissolved my body, and my tears flowed
    Turning around , I saw nobody,
    but the march was veiled by dust
    I cried as if I were on fire
    I followed their way and walked on tracks
    Even their tracks are covered with sand
    O, cameleer please hold on!

    Enchanting music to accompany the poem (my wife came out of her room to listen!)

    ... more's the pity. I hadn't thought of platonic love that way though myself... love unrequited (a old companion whom I understand very well) comes first to my mind.

    "I cried as if I were on fire"... is a gut-wrenching image.

    Enjoyed this offering very much.

    what if I were to bare my soul
    would you see me origami

    Beautiful song, Mohammad! It reminded me of the people that lose relatives to covid and that canīt say good bye to them.
