    One of the masterpieces of Punjabi poetry by one of the greatest Saints of all time...

    "O' Mother to whom shall I tell the story of my separation's grief.

    The fire lit inside me by the teacher smolders and smokes

    As I stir the ambers, I see the red Jewel

    The pain of separation has driven me mad

    Suffering is the bread I eat

    Pain is my curry dip, sighs of grief my cooking fire

    I roam the jungles and deserts in vain

    Says Hussain, the God's fakir:

    How happy I will be to find my prince!"
