Bulleh Shah - He Who is Stricken by Love
He Who is Stricken by LovebyBulleh Shah
English version by Mahmood Jamal
He who is stricken by LoveSings and dances out of tune.
He who wears the garb of LoveGets blessings from above.
Soon as he drinks from this cupNo questions and no answers remain.He who is stricken by LoveSings and dances out of tune.He who has the Beloved in his heart,He is fulfilled with his Love.No need he has for formality,He just enjoys his ecstasy.He who is stricken by LoveSings and dances out of tune.
