Your Friend stands on the other shore


Boat

O my heart! you have not known all the secrets of this city of
love: in ignorance you came, and in ignorance you return.

O my friend, what have you done with this life? You have taken
on your head the burden heavy with stones, and who is to
lighten it for you?

Your Friend stands on the other shore, but you never think in
your mind how you may meet with Him:
The boat is broken, and yet you sit ever upon the bank; and thus
you are beaten to no purpose by the waves.

The servant Kabîr asks you to consider; who is there that shall
befriend you at the last?
You are alone, you have no companion: you will suffer the
consequences of your own deeds.
