the voice of Umm Kulthum

15 May

photo taken in Paris.

‘Enta Omri’ (‘You are my life’):

Your eyes have taken me back to my lost days
They taught me to regret the past and its wounds
All that I saw before my eyes saw you was a life wasted
How could they count that as part of my life?

You are my life, with your light my dawn began
