For Your Eyes

For your eyes what my heart suffered and what it will,

And for love what is left of me and what is gone.

I have never been one to let love into my heart,

But whoever gazes into your eyes can’t help the fall.

 


Adapted from a poem by the Arabic  poet Al-Mutanabbi:

لعينيك ما يلقى الفؤاد وما لقي

وللحب ما لم يبق منى وما بقي

وما كنت ممن يدخل الحب قلبه

.ولكن من يبصر جفونك يعشق
