This Is the Time When – Magtymguly Pyragy

This Is the Time When
My friends, do not be in deep sleep at dawn,
This is the time when the doors are open for wishes,
And saintly men are granted blessings,
This the time when God shares his light.
Do not be sinful or you will burn down,
Know yourself and stay away from vanity,
This is the right time to repent, come back to your senses,
This is the time when sins are forgiven.
May God protect you from the fire of separation,
Do not get lost on the right path of all travelers,
Beware, this is the time when bowls of love
Are being drunk from the hands of a friend.
Even though you live a hundred years in this world,
A day will come when your body will turn into the soil,
This is the time when you can be freed from your vanity,
Gathering on the field of denial.
Magtymguly, you are all in thoughts of this world,
When young you gave your soul to gambling,
Now, when you stepped into the house of thirty,
This is the time when tears must be shed.
