My love sounds out like ney, if it could see my nice beloved

My love sounds out like ney, if it could see my nice beloved.

Oh come and help me my fortune, my soul is in disarray.

JAHAN:

May I sacrifice myself for you Askar, what has happened? Why do you sing so sadly? When one listens to your singing his heart breaks.

ASKAR: If you are concerned, dear aunt, it means you have spirit! 
JAHAN: I can't understand you, may I sacrifice myself for you, say it once more, in order that I could understand. 
ASKAR: I have not said such serious word to repeat it... Look here, aunt. Say, it shouldnt be so. If the world comes and passes away so, what will be the end of it? What will happen to us? 
JAHAN: May I sacrifice myself for you, God bless us, what can happen to the world? 
ASKAR: In brief, I say, what will be the end of it? What can be the result of it? For instance, lets imagine we grew up and gained perfect age. God bless us, we have riches and great estate. But you know this is not satisfaction either, and it can't calm human being's heart. There is need for something more. mI right or wrong? 
JAHAN: May I sacrifice myself for you, surely you are right! But I didn't entirely understand what you said. 
ASKAR: My talk is obvious, dear aunt! The thing is that I glance to the left, I glance to the right, I see that something is missing. 
JAHAN: Oh my God! If something is missing at home, send the boy to the market to buy it. There is no problem, why do you worry?
ASKAR: You don't understand what I mean. I talk to you about great thing, but you talk to me about shopping. Frankly speaking, Id like to know whats the purpose of life? I have got riches, much money. But this owner of riches also must own one thing. On the contrary, someone who doesnt own wealth and riches has flock in his family.
