II. 48. jis se rahani apâr jagat men

More than all else do I cherish at heart that love which makes me
  to live a limitless life in this world.
It is like the lotus, which lives in the water and blooms in the
  water: yet the water cannot touch its petals, they open beyond
  its reach.
It is like a wife, who enters the fire at the bidding of love.
  She burns and lets others grieve, yet never dishonours love.
This ocean of the world is hard to cross: its waters are very
  deep. Kabîr says: "Listen to me, O Sadhu! few there are who
  have reached its end."
