I am mad with love; And no one understands my plight. Only the wounded Understand the agonies of the wounded; When the fire rages in the heart. Only the jeweler knows the value of the jewel, Not the one who lets it go. In pain I wander from door to door, But could not find a redeemer. Says Mira: Harken, my Master, Mira's pain will subside When God (Shyam) comes as the Healer. Mirabai, poet and saint, ca 1498-1547
