My Heart is But a Moth on Your Candle-Like Face

Ahli Shirazi
1454 – 1535


My heart is but a moth on your candle like face, for it
bears prints of faithfulness. Issue the edict of union, for it
is besmeared with blood of grief.

Insignia of prosperity and edict of authority will be decora¬
ted in the name of Mir Ali Sher.

O God, I pray thee that enemy’s hand of power, should
always stand turned down as has been in the past.
