Rumi's Poem - Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan Qawwali

گهی خندم گهی گريم گهی افتم گهی خيزم

مسيحا در دلم پيدا و من بيمار می گردم

English Translation:

"No I am not roaming aimlessly around the streets and bazaar,
I am a lover searching for his beloved;
God have mercy on me, I am walking around troubled,
I have done wrong and sinned and am walking around wounded,
I have drunk the wine of desire and am strolling around for the beloved...
Though I may seem drunk I am in my senses."
