I walk burningly                                                
love dyed me reddingly
either sane or insane
see what love has done to me

folks I sift in winds           
dusty like roads      
folks pouring like floods 
see what love has done to me            

water flow my flood
in distress my liver cools  
Iím an obstinate mule   
love has done me

friends either lift me
or have your ways with me                 
made me weep now make me laugh    
see what love has done to me

I toil from village to town                   
the name of the prophet tongue to tongue
who heard my exile song             
what love has done me

becoming a Majnun* I walk                         
dreaming of my love as I talk         
crushed waking up                             
see love has done me              

poor Yunus Iím lost                               
head to toe wounds                          
astray from friendsí homes        
what love has done me
