The Religion of Love
The religion of Love
My heart has become suitable for every form;
A field for gazelles and a Church for priests;
And a house for Idols and Ka’ba for a pilgrim;
And tablets of Torah and pages of Quran.
I embraced the religion of Love, so I go wherever it’s Boats go,
Hence, Love is my religion and faith (1)
