My body is burning and grief has taken up abode Hoo
I shriek like blackbird perhaps my days don’t erode Hoo
Sing O coco bird! it is rainy session with rain hopefully God might bless Hoo
Steadfast and pursue ahead ‘Bahoo’ Sustainer unite with longing friend I stress Hoo
Commentary by M. A. Khan
With the love of Allah my body is burning and grief of separation has taken up residence in it. Like blackbird I will engage in dhikr so that my time is not wasted. Like coco bird (papeeha) I will sing for the illuminated rain in the hope that He might bless my inner with such rain. You have to be steadfast in striving towards attaining union with true Beloved.
