Sleep, oh sleep

Durme Durme

Traditional Sephardic Romance

Sleep, Oh sleep, my beloved, my maiden
Sleep, Oh sleep without worry or pain.

I am your slave, whose great desire is
To fill your dreams with everlasting love.

For two years my soul has despaired
Because of you, my jewel, my lady fair.

Hear, Oh hear my plaintive guitar strings
Hark, my beauty, how my suffering sings.
