Kabir’s poetry is often characterized by its spiritual and mystic themes. Although the exact wording of his poems may vary in different translations, here’s a rendition of a poem “My Body And My Mind” attributed to Kabir in English:
My Body And My Mind
My body and my mind…
My body and my mind are in depression because
You are not with me.
How much I love you and want you in my house!
When I hear people describe me as your bride I look sideways ashamed,
because I know that far inside us we have never met.
Then what is this love of mine?
I don’t really care about food, I don’t really care about sleep,
I am restless indoors and outdoors.
The bride wants her lover as much as a thirsty man wants water.
And how will I find someone who will take a message
to the Guest from me?
How restless Kabir is all the time!
How much he wants to see the Guest!
