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

Oh love of my life ā€“ Iā€™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 ā€“ you are not lost and I will not be lost because you are alive in my blood and my soul until death.
