Eternal Enchantment

Let it go, don't waste time in talking anymore,
now let it go
In the eternal enchantment of your eyes let me flow.
My eyes are under that bewildering spell
For centuries which has lived on,
Till the end of time shall go on!
Whenever you raise your eyes to look at me
Like a caravan pass in front of my sight
Ancient tales from the lands of Egypt, India and Iran:
some emperor squandering his crown and throne
wandering senselessly in a desert, a handsome prince
madly smashing his head against mountains and stones
for his sweetheart, losing his life in groans
---------------------------------------------------
All pass in front of my eyes; a caravan
of ancient tales of Arabia, India and Iran!

Let it go, don't waste time in talking anymore,
now let it go
Tonight, for a few moments, I'm close to you
Luckier than any human too!
For a few moments I'm truly free
To imbibe from your heart music and light
To fill my life with love and delight;
This spirit of life that rages in your being
Away from time and existence it throbs
Unfamiliar with autumn or death!
One day when your body will crumble to dust
The light of your soul shall radiantly live on
Will sing eulogies of its magnificent existence
And lure men with its pristine munificence

Let it go, don't waste time in talking anymore,
now let it go!
Behold this brief moment of time
If you wish it could be eternal
Expand and become immortal!
Who can be satisfied with mere sentences?
Who can cleanse the darkness of soul's crevices?
Look, see this intoxication of my emotions
It has induced a tremor in your heart as well!
Now let me fill my being with the delights of life
Now let me seek completion of my soul!
