Hold Me

Ehsan Sehgal

My life was in the darkness
I travelled in the sorrows
You came into my life
As the light
And all sides turned lighten
That awakened me
And I felt true love
I have a new morale
I know Rumi's Philosophy
Today I have the pleasure to be
I considered and understood
Love life
Today my covenant with you
Hold my hands
In your hands
Come into my arms
Swear to die
And live together
I am the disciple of love
Come, celebrate love
Come, celebrate love
All over the world
Send this news
We are in love.
