Pir Vilayat KhanO good friend, O divine friend,
O friend universal,
O hero-lover, O oneness-love,
Pir Vilayat, Pir!
With your sleepless heart you desire to wipe
The streaming tears of the world.
Within, without an unparalleled beauty-smile,
Along with the soul-stirring
Transformation-Flute of Lord Krishna.
With you and in you
Eternity's movement and stillness.
