|Birth||20 November 1977, Tehran|
Maryam Heydarzadeh (Persian: مریم حیدرزاده; born November 20, 1977) is a contemporary Iranian poet, lyricist, and singer.
Heydarzadeh is blind. She writes simple, yet deep poetry, almost always about the state of being in love. It is the simplicity with which Heydarzadeh writes that has led to her immense popularity amongst Iranians. Heydarzadeh has a very explicit sense to life and, commonly in her poems, she imagines that she is in another world.
Some Iranian singers have created songs using her poetry. Her lyrics can be heard in songs by pop singers Kamran and Hooman who have turned many of her poems into songs on their debut album 20. She was also behind the song Begoo Nemiri (Say You Won’t Go) by Benyamin Baran, on which she herself is featured reciting her own lyrics
