If you’re headed north, be alert
Tell everybody you’re headed south!
Lovers delight in this wine’s secret
What will a dry heart understand?
I ate your fruit, I soiled your leaves
I played from branch to branch
You burn, and I fly away?
You live and love but once!
In this body, the lock
In this body, the key
In this body, the one who
Opens the door
Sweetheart, dear girl
Wake up your beloved
He sleeps a deep, forgetful sleep
Shake him awake!
You are the sea, and I the fish
I’ll stay immersed in you
If you dry up, I’ll die too
What would I be without you?
Kabir, this boat is wobbly
And the boatmen are inept
They got across who were light
The heavy ones drowned
In the forest of this love, a peacock calls out
My love is more beautiful than any holy place
He wounded me, then forgot all about me
