Never Too Late

If only death could I masterly own
To conquer flesh and my own life defeat;
If only once I leave my cel’stial throne
And lay forever on an earthly seat;
If only light this world for once does leave,
And hearts full of hatred nev’r love conceive;
If only she could love me once b’fore death
Conquers me and takes away my last breath;
If only she could me forever own
To bring me closer to her divine throne;
But oh, alas, my days in life are very few,
And deeds of evil and good to Allah are due.
