There is only you

There is only you, there is no me, beloved.
There is only you, there is no me.

Like the shadows in a ruined house,
I go around and around in my head.

When I speak, then you speak too.
When I am silent, then you are in my mind.

When I sleep, you sleep with me.
When I walk, you are on my way.

Bullha, the lord has come to my house.
My life is sacrificed to him.

– Bullhe Shah,Sufi Lyrics
tr. Christopher Shackle
