When the crescent revealed its heavenly smile
The spirit of Layla suddenly brushed past me.
I stood entranced as she whispered in my ear
Give up your food and water just for me
And shed your sins, and multiply your prayers
Then I will follow you wherever you may go,
I’ll breathe a breeze of love into your heart,
Be still and remember I am your special friend.
