Poetry on Love of Allah

A few nights ago,
Hazrat Ji (Shaykh Zulfiqar Ahmad) DB recited this heart touching poetry about love of Allah Swt:
وَاللَّهِ مَا طَلَعَتْ شَمْسٌ وَلَا غَرُبَتْ إِلَّا وَ أَنْتَ فِىْ قَلْبِىْ وَ وَسْوَاسِـــيْ
By Allah the sun never rose or set 
but You were my heart and in my thoughts.
وَلَا جَلَسْتُ إِلَى قَوْمٍ أُحَدِّثُهُــْم إِلَّا وَ أَنْتَ حَدِيْثِيْ بَيْنَ جَلَّاسِــيْ
And I never sat conversing with any people, But You were the subject of my conversation In the midst of my comrades.
وَلَا ذَكَرْتُكَ مَحْزُوْناً وَ لَا فَرِحًا إلِاَّ وَ حُبُّـكَ مَقْـرُوْنٌ بِأَنْفَاسِـيْ
And I never mentioned You in joy or sorrow, But love for You was mingled with my breath.
وَلَا هَمَمْتُ بِشُرْبِ الْمَاءِ مِنْ عَطَشٍ إِلَّا رَأَيْتُ خَيَالاً مِنْكَ فِي الْكَـــأسِ
And I never resolved to drink water, when I was athirst, But I saw an image of You in the cup.
وَلَوْ قَدَرْتُ عَلى الْإِتيَانِ جِئْتُـكُمْ سَعْيًا عَلَى الْوَجْهِ أَوْ مَشْيًا عَلَى الرَّأسِ
And were I able to come I would have visited You, Crawling on my face or walking on my head
