Man yaar toraa daaram o aghyaar namikhaaham
Ghair az to ke del bordi deldaar namikhaaham
You are my Friend and I don’t want any other.
You are my Beloved and I don’t want any other to capture my heart.
Khaari ke ze dard-e-to khastast maraa dar del
Man khasta-e-aan khaaram golzaar namikhaaham
A thorn of pain coming from You has wounded my heart,
But I don’t want to replace this wound by any flower.
Gar jelwa dehi bar del naqd-e-do jahaan guyam
Man ‘aasheq-e-didaaram dinaar namikhaaham
If You polish my heart, I’ll pay all the cash of both worlds for it.
I love to see You and it is money I don’t want.
Serri ke maraa baa tost baa ghair to chun guyam
To daani o man daanam ezhaar namikhaaham
Why should I reveal the secret between You and me to others?
You know it and I know it; I don’t want it to be disclosed to all.
Andar haram-e-jaanam kas raa nabuwad manzel
Ghair az to darin khalwat deyaar namikhaaham
In the sanctuary of my soul no one may stay,
Because I don’t want that anyone else but You should retire there.
Khun mikhuram az dastat o aazaar na pendaaram
Kaan khaater-e-naazok raa aazaar namikhaaham
Through Your hands I’m afflicted, but I never think of injury,
Because I don’t want to cause grief to Your tender heart.
Man baada naminawsham ammaa chu to’i saaqi
Andar tan-e-khud yak rag hoshyaar namikhaaham
I don’t drink wine unless You are the cupbearer.
I don’t want to experience a slight dash of sobriety myself.
‘Asheq ke toraa khaahad baa ghair na yaar aamad
Jannaat namijuyam wa anhaar namikhaaham
The lover who longs for You cannot have any other friend.
I don’t search for paradise and I don’t want its rivers.
Donya talabad ghaafel ‘oqbaa talabad ‘aaqel
Man ‘asheqam o bidel joz yaar namikhaaham
The ignorant desire this world and the wise seek the life to come.
I am a sad lover and I don’t want anything but the Friend.
Az hasti-ye-khod begozar begozaar mo’in afsar
Jaai ke nagonjad sar-e-dastaar namikhaaham
Give up this self-consciousness, Mo’in, give up this crown!
There is no place for it and I don’t want a turban.
