Inscribed on Layla’s Headstoned


Two lovers lie in one tomb

United forever in deaths dark womb.

Faithful in separation, true in love:

May one tent house them in heaven above.

Just read this in a book by Reza Aslan, “No God but God”, in a chapter on sufism.  The words were  inscribed on Layla’s headstone after their deaths. (layla and Majnun).
