Umm Kulthoum - Wa Daret Al Ayyam (And the days have gone by) -أم كلثد ارت الايامال

The days went by
And the days passed
We didn't see each other or speak to each other
Then I saw him
And forgot that I wasn't speaking to him
And forgot my sleepless nights
And forgave him for tormenting my heart and playing with it
I don't how I spoke to him again
Who do I have but my love?
He met me with longing in his eyes
He said hi He said hi and took my hand
And whispered to me saying "I was wrong
Why did I forget the time we were apart
Where are my tears that did not sleep at night
With a smile from his eyes he made me forget them
A state of agony, the sweetest agony
The agony of love
The agony of love for lovers I can't last a day (literally, bear or be patient) in his absence
This patience in and of itself needs patience
Describe to me what is patience
I found it to be a myth and nonsense in love
It can barely even be said Where can I run and ride?
Our beautiful nights (ie times together) are everywhere
We filled them with love, us two together
We filled the world with hope Hope and tenderness
God bless those who love
They are confused and oppressed
Unable to be patient
The days went by
And the days passed
And the dawn finally appeared after my abandonment
Rising with its rosy hue
And the light of the morning roused my happiness
And said to my love for him, get up and rejoice
From my happiness, from my happiness I was lost
And I found myself with you, living with you in a new spring (like the season, a new beginning)
There's nothing like this, nothing like this
Nothing like an unending love
A love, a love, a love reborn
