Oh Heer! Come here my Love!
Where have you been all this while!
I once came as a cow herd under cover of darkness
Today! I have pierced my ears and come to you as a fakir
My identity i have hidden from the world
But my Love for you i can no longer conceal
You used to come to the forest to see me
In the banks of the Chenab we used to embrace
By the gentle waters, i can still hear your heartbeat
Amongst the rustic flowers of the forest i can feel your fragrance
I n the boat of Luddan out first meeting
A rustic and a beauty eye to eye !
Our hearts melted and our souls united
Love eternal ! Indeed!
But this life of separation!!
Oh ! How much sorrow ! How much pain!
Oh Heer! Come to your Ranjha!
I can no longer hide behind masks!
I can no longer bear the pain of separation
In the name of Allah!
Oh My Love! Oh Heer! Come back to your Ranjha !
Shed your cloak of selfishness!
Within this holy-land of Mount Horeb
The burning bush is revealed!
A fire that burns; yet does not consume!
A fire that harms no flesh;; leaves no ashes!
A fire that purifies the heart and soul !
And within this holy fire; my soul burns!
Burns with the fire of Love!
Burns with fire of selflessness!
And in this land of the holy of holy
And in this land of where Moses was transformed
"I am" is revealed!
For “Iam who I am”
And "Iam" , is was, and always shall be!
And "I am" is here within !
And "I am" is theophany!
The heretic says!
When moses removed his sandals
He still was a coward!
But the will of the Lord led him
So let go of your ego dear friend!
"Iam" shall be revealed ! Be Led !
Two friends beside me!
Walking with me through life!
Walking hand in hand!
Through mountains and deserts
Valleys and streams
Through joy and sorrow
Though gain and loss
The values of life, universe and everything!
Sometimes one or the other moves away
Only to show me, my own folly!
Only to gently nudge me back!
Oh Wisdom ! my great friend!
You are the shining sun in the sky of understanding !
I thank thee! For teaching me!
For him who has inner vision and insight!
The mind is but a slave !
And all worldly pleasures are worthless pursuits
Self is realized through selflessness!
And love is the greatest virtue!
Oh wisdom! I bow down before you!
Oh Death! My great friend!
Though dark and deceitful !
You no longer scare me!
You move so close to me everyday!
Like rain drops that will ultimately reach the sea
One day we will become one!
How vicious you are in snatching away loved ones
Yet some how you have let me be!
I keep laughing at you for this
And yet you teach me humility !
Oh dear friend!
How much longer must we play this game of life!
Wisdom and Death! Two great friends beside me!
Walking with me for life
The values of life universe and everything !
Oh Great friends! I thank thee !
