Ahmad and Ayda Shamlou
Translation:

He who professes his love for you
is a sad minstrel
who has lost his songΒ 

Love, I wish it was a language I could speak

A thousand happy cockerels are in your eyes
A thousand silent canaries are in my throat

Love, I wish it was a language I could speak

He who professes his love for you
is the suffering heart of a night
that seeks a moonlight

A thousand smiling suns follow your every step
A thousand weeping stars beg me to follow

Love, I wish it was a language I could speak

"And I summarize the whole world in the warmth of your shirt."

- Ahmad Shamlou (via man-of-prose)
