I Long For You, This Is So, What Can I Do - Poem by Bulleh Shah

I long for you, this is so, what can I do?
I cannot live, I cannot die.
I long for you.

Listen to my plea.
Night or day, I have no peace.
Not another moment can I exist without you.
I long for you, this is so, what can I do?

This separation-torment is unending!
Can somebody stop this pain?
If I do not see him, how will I live?
I long for you, this is so, what can I do?

Says Bulla, I am in dire distress,
O please find a remedy.
How can I endure such pain?
I long for you, this is so, what can I do?
