The Fountain And The Border

Dedicated to Muslim women
  
By the fountain east of the Turkish border,
My Muslim lover waits for me  
I shall be at her side before nightfall  
And I shall gently brush her face  
   
Something goes wrong with our rendezvous  
The rebels abduct me unexpectedly  
Somehow they think I am an informer  
   
Here in this dark and damp cave I pray  
I recall the nights I spent with my darling  
We had good times at the fountain  
How I miss the moonlight and my guitar  
   
The rebels are holding me in captivity  
If I could send her good tidings,  
Her heart would not be filled with dismay  
   
We used to sit by the fountain,  
She would sing while I played my guitar  
We would dance on the wall of the fountain,  
And we would jump in the water  
   
Each morning she goes back to the fountain  
She sits and waits expectantly  
And she sings her love songs for me  
   
Rajeeyah will never lose hope  
Her heart tells her that I am alive  
She is sad, lonely and afraid,  
But my safe return will bring her gladness  
   
On this foggy and snowy morning,  
I escape from my captors and flee  
But I feel a sharp pain in my left side  
   
I am only a short distance from the village  
And I have to get across the border  
I cannot let the pursuers kill me  
   
I am cold, and I am getting weak,  
But my love for Rajeeyah strengthens me  
And I get up each time I fall in the snow  
   
Limping and leaning on a long stick,  
I manage to cross the border safely  
The villagers rescue me and nurse my wounds  
   
It is a miracle that I am free  
Now I must hurry to the fountain,  
My beauty waits for me there  
   
I see Rajeeyah from a distance  
Although the water is frozen,  
She is still hoping that I shall return  
   
My darling catches sight of me  
And she runs to greet me with open arms  
We embrace each other,  
And tears roll down our cheeks  
   
Rajeeyah and I are together at last!  
The fountain gave her faith in me  
Our kisses filled the night with love  
Nothing can keep me away from my baby
