O Captain of my Heart رابعہ بصری


Rabi’a Al-’Adawiyya

My Hunger,
My Shelter,
My Friend,
My Food for the journey,
My journey’s End,
You are my breath,
My hope,
My companion,
My craving,
My abundant wealth.
Without You – my Life, my Love,
I would never have wandered across these endless countries.
You have poured out so much grace for me,
Done me so many favors, given me so many gifts –
I look everywhere for Your love –
Then suddenly I am filled with it.
O Captain of my Heart
Radiant Eye of Yearning in my breast,
I will never be free from You
As long as I live.
Be satisfied with me, Love,
And I am satisfied.
