I Am Calling You, Friend

Niyazi Misri

2013-11-01 00:00:00

Oh the beauty in my heart

I'm calling you friend, oh friend.

Thousand pieces torn apart

I'm calling you friend, oh friend.

I'm filled with the love of thee

Mistaken my piety,

Lost my mind in ecstasy

I'm calling you friend, oh friend.

On the road and on the lane,

In the sacred or profane

Among pious with the vain

I'm calling you friend, oh friend

In the river, I'm a haze

Through mountains, I will gaze

For all the world, to amaze

I'm calling you friend, oh friend.

A bird in deserted land

Found comfort at roses' hand.

So my bleeding heart will stand

I'm calling you friend, oh friend

Passing the world of worry

Flapping wings in the empty.

Your love and joy lifted me

I'm calling you friend, oh friend

Timeless feelings unspeakable

A condition incurable

On a canyon unbridgeable.

I'm calling you friend, oh friend

All I see is my friend's face.

Towards you I have to pace.

Hope has never lost a case,

I'm calling you friend, oh friend

Seas and Oceans become breath.

Lungs shatter calling your path.

Till the day this voice be death,

I'm calling you friend, oh friend

I'm not sick or healthy,

Not heavenly or earthly.

But everywhere, constantly,

I'm calling you friend, oh friend

Walking behind my friend's ways,

Smelling rosebud through the hays,

Saying what Niyazi's says,

I'm calling you friend, oh friend.
