Jasmine Flower – Poem

by Mohammed Ibraheem Al-Ahmed (English below)

وردة الياسمين

لقد طال البعد وزاد الشوق والحنين

يا وردة عطرها عطر الياسمين

ببعدك عني يا حبيبتي ألم وأنيين

لا يعرف بحالي إلا العاشقين

يا وردة يا وردة الياسمين

برحيلك سأبقى لك من الذاكرين

يا وردة الياسمين يا وردة الياسمين

محمد إبراهيم الأحمد

Distance grew, yearning and longing increased—

You are a flower with a Jasmine scent.

My love, when you are away I am in pain;

Only lovers know how I feel.

You are a flower, a Jasmine flower—

While you are away, I will always remember you.

Jasmine flower, Jasmine flower.
