Rumi

Your longing for Me is my message to you;

All your attempts to reach Me,

Are in reality My attempts to reach you

~ Rumi


Patience is not sitting and waiting, it is foreseeing.

It is looking at the thorn and seeing the rose,

Looking at the night and seeing the day.

Lovers are patient and know that the moon needs time to become full.

~ Rumi


You have no idea how hard I’ve looked

For a gift to bring You.

Nothing seemed right.

What’s the point of bringing gold to

The gold mine, or water to the ocean.

Everything I came up with was like

Taking spices to the Orient.

It’s no good giving my heart and my

Soul because you already have these.

So I’ve brought you a mirror.

Look at yourself and remember me.

~ Rumi


“I’ve come to take you with me

even if I must drag you along

But first I must steal your heart

then settle you in my soul.

I’ve come as a spring to lay beside your blossoms

To feel the glory of happiness

and spread your flowers around.

I’ve come to show you off

as the adornment in my house

and elevate you to the heavens

as the prayers of those in love.

I’ve come to take back the kiss you once stole

Either return it with grace

or i must take it by force.

You’re my life.

You’re my soul.

Please be my last prayer.

My heart must hold you forever.

~Rumi


I’ve come to drag you out of yourself

And take you into my heart.

I’ve come to bring out the beauty

You never knew you had

And lift you like a prayer to the sky.

~Rumi

 


The springtime of Lovers has come,

that this dust bowl may become a garden;

the proclamation of heaven has come,

that the bird of the soul may rise in flight.

The sea becomes full of pearls,

the salt marsh becomes sweet as kauthar,

the stone becomes a ruby from the mine,

the body becomes wholly soul.

~Rumi
