Why Should I Go To Kaaba - Poem by Bulleh Shah

Why should I go to Kaaba,
When I long for Takht Hazaara?

People worship Kaaba,
I worship my dearest friend.
I long for Takht Hazaara.

Beloved Raanjha, seeing my defects, do not put me out of mind,
Remember(think of) this worthless one.
I long for Takht Hazaara.

Though I cannot swim,
It will be your shame if I drown.
I long for Takht Hazaara.

I found no one like you,
Though I searched the entire world.
I long for Takht Hazaara.
