Zamzam crystal secretly falls into dream
Alas! My beamless and lost light.
Flood of life in Sa’y, shah the confidant in the portico
Three flowers, three angels, three drops of whirl
Heavenly Cardigan was compassionate and gracious
Hajar, Zubaidah and Mihrimah are worthy of a kiss.
Good evening Thursday;
the mind that is the focus of love
Beneath the Kaaba lies a sea, a drop of ocean…
We turn side by side in its fountain
A silent and internal water clock; Arafat and Mina
Hair of Hawwah is a cloud; her heart’s eye is like red henna
Sky towers fall; their support is mountains, ages after ages
I perform Hijra; Ali is on one side of me while Fatima is on the other side
All blessings were shared; a drop of Zamzam is my rightful share.

ÜÇ DAMLA ZEMZEM
Zemzem kristali giz, düşe düşer
Üç çiçek, üç melek, üç damla semah
İyi akşamlar perşembe, sevi odağı Kabe
Sebilinde yan yana, döneriz yana yana
Hicretteyim, bir yanımda Ali, bir yanımda Fatıma
Paylaşıldı tüm nimetler, helalim bir damla zemzem.
