Mohammad Quli Qutb Shah

(1580 - 1612 / Golkonda / India)

Ghazal 1 - Poem by Mohammad Quli Qutb Shah

[I can't] drink even a sip from the wine-cup in the absence of my beloved
[I can't] live even for a moment in the absence of my beloved
[People] advise that I should have patience if the beloved isn't around
It's easy to say but O my friend it's difficult to practice
O Qutub Shah! Don't counsel an insane person like me
[For] an insane person cannot be counseled
