Why Did I Love You So
by Vagif Bayatly Oner (born 1948)

Why did I love you so,
Did I want you so,
For the one thousand thorns,
And one thousand roses
In my soul,
Why did I want you so?!

I hid this soul in love,
But is there a person
Who did not see it?!
Why did I both hide it and
Also wish everyone to be aware?!

I begged God
Day and night and every moment
To make you my sultan
For a thousand years,
And why did I beg God
To also make you my slave?!
