Didn't I tell you not to go to that place?
It is ME, who is your intimate FRIEND.
In this imaginary plain of non-existence,
I am your spring of eternal life.
Even if you lose yourself in wrath for a hundred thousand years,
at the end, you will discover,
it is ME, who is the culmination of your dreams.

Didn't I tell you not to be satisfied with the veil of this world?
I am the master illusionist.
it is ME, who is the welcoming banner at the gate of your contentment.
Didn't I tell you? I am an ocean, you are a fish;
do not go to the dry land, it is ME, who is your comforting body of water.
Didn't I tell you not to fall in this trap like a blind bird?
I am your wings, I am the strength in your wings,
I am the wind keeping you in flight.
Didn't I tell you that they will kidnap you from the path?
They will steal your warmth and take your devotion away.
I am your fire, I am your heartbeat,
I am the life in your breath.
Didn't I tell you? They will accuse you of all the wrongdoings,
they will call you ugly names, they will make you forget
it is ME, who is the source of your happiness.
Didn't I tell you?
Wonder not, how your life will turn out,
how you will ever get your world in order,
it is ME, who is your omnipresent creator.
If your are a guiding torch of the heart,
know the path to that house.
If you are a person of GOD,
 know this, It is ME, who is the chief of the village of your life.
Having crossed the river,
where will you go, O friend ?
There's no road to tread,
No traveler ahead,
Neither a beginning, nor an end.
There's no water, no boat, no boatman, no cord;
No earth is there, no sky, no time, no bank, no ford.
You have forgotten the Self within,
Your search in the void will be in vain;
In a moment this life will ebb
And in this body you won't remain.
Be ever conscious of this, O friend,
You have to immerse within your Self;
Kabir says, salvation you won't then need,
For what you are, you would be indeed.
