I once had a thousand desires,
But in my one desire to know you
all else melted away.
… The pure essence of your being
has taken over my heart and soul.
… Now there is no second or third,
only the sound of your sweet cry.
Through your grace I have found
a treasure within myself.
I have found the truth of the Unseen world.
I have come upon the eternal ecstasy.
I have gone beyond the ravages of time.
I have become one with you !
Now my heart sings,
“I am the soul of the world.”
From my first breath I have longed for Him –
This longing has become my life.
This longing has seen me grow old. . . .
But one mention of Beloved
and all my youth comes back to me.~Rumi♥
