Searching for The Friend

from Lalla: Naked Song, translated by Coleman Barks

I wearied myself searching for The Friend
with efforts beyond my strength.

I came to the door and saw how
powerfully the locks were bolted.

And the longing in me became that strong,
and then I saw that I was gazing
from within the presence.

With that waiting, and in giving up all trying,
only then did Lalla flow out
from where I knelt.

- Laila
