Mehfuz (In English)– My translated version from Euphoria’s.

24Aug06

So what if life is all smoke?

And all speech is snuffed out?

So what if God Himself does not like me?

And if we are parted?

So many troubles, so many floods

Time has given us enough tests

But this is a sign

Of your lips

Their corners

Turn up in a laugh

And I remain protected

Your eyes, hidden pain

I remain protected in your tears

I remain protected.

So what if there are reasonless reasons?

And no crime exists?

So what if your actions are naught but dust?

What if we are parted?

So many lengths

Time is such a painful healer

And still, the signs remain

Your eyes, hidden pain

I remain protected in your tears

I remain protected.

The pages of the ancients

Like memories

I am protected

In your eyes

In your memories

I am protected

In your words

In your arms

I was troubled

And time didn’t stand still

And still, the signs remain

Your eyes, hidden pain

I remain protected in your tears

Of your lips

Their corners

Turn up in a laugh

Your stoned heart

Protect me

My memories

My heart

My pain

My joy

Me.

I remain protected.

    hmm… translations. “secure” sounds closer to mehfuz than “protected” no?

    True–but ‘protected’ sounds a lot better in English than ‘secure.’

    — sounds a lot better in English —
    True. Can’t argue with that. Thanks for humouring comment #1 🙂 *withdraws case*

    I have a question for you though — I am pretty sure I have disabled anonymous posts on my blog. How did you get around the system? Not in an accusatory tone by the way.

    Eh? I chose anonymous, entered word verification, and it let me through after saying ‘comment will show up after owner validates it’. At no point did I have to use a brain. Maybe you should recheck your settings, or maybe they just block robots via word verification.

    Okay — just checked my settings. Must have figured that if I have comment moderation on, I do not need to disable anonymous comments. 🙂

    Do you have a blog too then?
