IN ABSENCE, by                    
First Line: My chick, my pretty one
Last Line: And from my heart to thine.
Alternate Author Name(s): Abu Marwun `abd Ad-malik Ibn Abi Al-`ala' Zuhr; Ibn Zuhr

My chick, my pretty one,
My little quail, my son:
When we had to part
I left with him my heart.

I yearned so lovingly
For him, and he for me:
Bitter tears we shed
When our farewells were said.

Love must aweary grow
Of running to and fro
From thy heart to mine,
And from my heart to thine.
