The lovers will drink wine night and day



The Lover is ever drunk with Love.
He is mad,
she is free.
He sings with delight,
she dances with ecstasy.

Caught by our own thoughts,
we worry about everything.
But once we get drunk on that Love
whatever will be, will be. The Lovers
will drink wine night and day.
They will drink until they can
tear away the veils of intellect and
melt away the layers of shame and modesty.

When in Love,
body, mind, heart and soul don't even exist.
Become this,
fall in Love,
and you will not be separated again.
