Worldy Tastes & Sublime Essence of the Lord

rae man thaero koe nehee khi(n)ch laee jin bhaar ||
O my mind, even if you carry someone's burden, they don't belong to you.

ibrK bsyro pMiK ko qYso iehu sMswru ]1]
birakh basaero pa(n)kh ko thaiso eihu sa(n)saar ||1||
This world is like the perch of the bird on the tree. ||1||

I drink in the sublime essence of the Lord.

With the taste of this essence, I have forgotten all other tastes. ||1||Pause||

Aaur muey ikAw roeIAY jau Awpw iQru n rhwie ]
aour mueae kiaa roeeai jo aapaa thhir n rehaae ||
Why should we weep at the death of others, when we ourselves are not permanent?

jo aupjY so ibnis hY duKu kir rovY blwie ]2]
jo oupajai so binas hai dhukh kar rovai balaae ||2||
Whoever is born shall pass away; why should we cry out in grief? ||2||

jeh kee oupajee theh rachee peevath maradhan laag ||
We are re-absorbed into the One from whom we came; drink in the Lord's essence, and remain attached to Him.

Says Kabeer, my consciousness is filled with thoughts of remembrance of the Lord; I have become detached from the world. ||3||2||13||64||
