Alas, don’t tell me the Christians are lost.
Don’t tell me the Jews are lost.
Don’t tell me the infidels are lost.
Alas, my brother, you are lost,
That is why everyone else seems lost.

Album : ‘Ishq | Supreme Love
Artiest : Abida Parveen
Nummer: Mein Nara E Mastana | I Am Drunk With Love And Yet Thirsty (Urdu ‘ghazal’ van Wasif Ali Wasif).
Slogan of Inebriation am I, drunkard mercurialness am I
drink may I , may I not hardly does it make a difference
A burning heat of love am I, the eventual
Tear of ignominy , a pearl unfound am I
Pern of heaven, the gem of empires and I
Hath when humanity known me so?
Illuminating light of the dusk, a raging flame am I
Mordancy of parting, Destination of Pyralid am I
A desert of thoughts, a river of which fall?
the biggest reality of the universe yet unrevealed
A frozen beauty am I, a ringlet in anger
A flower, the dew am I, beauty of the beloved
Wasif, slayed am I, heart of the crowd
A broken heart am I, a lonely in the city.
