Eternal Secret 

- 6 -

ince my melancholy heart envisioned the image of my Friend
I celebrate the interwining of my entangled heart.

Thank God, I found the stoney threshold of my Friend
Why now center my reverence on the Ka'aba.

Where the heart bows there my head shall also bow
Toward my Friend's lane I shall bow, as I worship the Ka'aba.

To see the blossoming of my heart's emotion
I shall turn my eyes toward this single path.

We shall obliterate this difference between us
Khadim, I shall efface myself to join my Friend.
