I Have A Mirror For You

The lake Saif Al Malook maybe bewitching for many

I have my own lake made of love inside my heart

Where only your beautiful reflections dwell

The moonlit nights charm the visitors of Saif Al Malook

But my lake has a brighter surface

For me lake Saif Al Malook is useless

Because inside my heart’s lake only your magic works

All those songs that you wrote with your breaths on my face

I see them floating all around me today

I have a mirror for you, my darling

And that mirror is gilded and wrought with my feelings

You tilt it in any direction , you will see only yourself

In this mirror, we are forever young ,my darling

I have a place for you, called my home

Once you enter it , nobody can take you away

All the wishful nights that we have not written

With our heartbeats yet , are waiting for us in that home

And , yes far in future I can see a girl belonging to another century

Writing our story, in a language not known to the world .

Always Return to Me

When life betrays you

Always return to me

When you are lighter than an

autumn leaf

And the winds carry you

From place to place

Darling, return to me

When all your looks are gone

And your body laughs at you

Return swiftly to me

I am, yes I am your home

Then come back to me

When you have nothing to give

You will find me waiting for you

Now, you may play around

When you lose this game

Find your refuge in me

Darling , let me be your eternal

Lodging and peace

Because I love the man inside you.
