What Can I Say How I Got Separated

What can I say how I got separated from my garden
And how I got imprisoned in the net of greed

It is strange that the whole world being against me
How the recipient of honor of respectability I have been

Some demand of showing and seeing was on the Tur
What do you know, O heart! How it was decided?

The desire to be without any desire is also a desire
How the heart's bird freed from the net of greed was

Those desirous of seeing You, see You here also
Then how the Last Day's promise a test of patience was

The Perfect Beauty itself may be the cause of this unveiling
How became self-apparent what concealed in curtains was

Death as a recipe still remains, O separation's pathos!
The physician is insane, how I deemed incurable was

O admonishing eye! Have you ever seen, how the rose
Having been born out of dust became colorful

The purpose of interrogation for deeds was to disgrace me
Otherwise all as to how and why it happened obvious was

My destruction was something worth witnessing
What can I say how l facing Him was
