Maryem Hassan Tollar sings Mawal Saba, a devotional Arabic requiem.

Oh love of my life – I’m calling you, can you hear me?
Oh soul mate, your hopes have been lost, and so I am lost
Your hopes became a mirage after your body was covered with the earth
No – you are not lost and I will not be lost because you are alive in my blood and my soul until death.
