I.129. sakhiyo, ham hun bhai valamasi

 

DEAR FRIEND, I am eager to meet my Beloved! My youth has flowered, and the pain of separation from Him troubles my breast.

I am wandering yet in the alleys of knowledge without purpose, but

I have received His news in these alleys of knowledge.

I have a letter from my Beloved: in this letter is an unutterable message, and now my fear of death is done away.

Kabir says: 'O my loving friend! I have got for my gift the Deathless One.'
