I and You
|My eye is unacquainted with the taste for the Sight|
Your eye is the knower of Nature’s secret, so what?
|My tongue is indebted to the complaint against time|
The universe’s rotation depends on your will, so what?
|The sky kept me wandering in garden like the breeze’s current|
The sky has bestowed the abode over you, so what?
|The wealth of your life is free of desire for gain|
In my heart is the anxiety of loss, so what?
|Your planes are flying about in the air|
My ship is devoid of the sail, so what?
|I became strong, so what, I became weak, so what?|
This happened, so what, that happened, so what?
|Tranquillity does not exist to any extent in this rose-garden!|
If you became spring, and I became autumn, so what?
