Perhaps I'Ll See You
Perhaps I'll see you, so shall I see you with rapture
by Abu Tammam
While living is tender and Time is still a boy?
They were years of love, their length made to be forgotten
By reminiscing distance, as if they were days.
Then days of separation set out, following
Passion with grief, as if they were years.
Then those years passed, so did their folk
As if they both were dreams.
