We cannot separate

written by Ali Rasuli

translated by Rouhi Shafii

We cannot separate,
a moon which has fallen into the sea

from the waves.

I cannot separate the beauty from your eyes,

or the flower from the mountain,

or desolation from my heart.

We cannot separate a cry

from the lips,

the rain from the street,

the tree from the leaf,

or the autumn from the tree.

My darling,

you cannot separate the bread

from a revolution,

tyranny from them,

you, from me,

and hope from us.

My darling hope,

A beautiful hope is the night

when hope knocks at the door

and with a smile would say,

its daybreak.
