Only You can heal the Mirabai

O friends, I am mad
with love, and no one sees.

my mattress is a sword-point
how can I sleep
when the bed of my Beloved
is spread open elsewhere?

Only those who have felt the knife
can understand the wound,
only the jeweler
knows the nature of the Jewel.

I have lost it,
and though anguish takes me door to door,
no doctor answers.

Mira call her lord: O Dark One
Only You can heal the pain.

~ Mirabai ( 1498-1565 )
Art by Maria Szollosi
