If You Pass Your Night

May 5th, 2012, posted in Rumi, Sufism
If you pass your nightflower n nail
and merge it with dawn
for the sake of heart
what do you think will happen
if the entire world
is covered with the blossoms
you have labored to plant
what do you think will happen
if the elixir of life
that has been hidden in the dark
fills the desert and towns
what do you think will happen
if because of
your generosity and love
a few humans find their lives
what do you think will happen
if you pour an entire jar
filled with joyous wine
on the head of those already drunk
what do you think will happen
go my friend
bestow your love
even on your enemies
if you touch their hearts
what do you think will happen

Only You – Rumi

February 12th, 2012, posted in LoVE, Rumi, Sufism
only you -rumi
Only you
I choose among the entire world.
Is it fair of you
letting me be unhappy?
My heart is a pen in your hand.
It is all up to you
to write me happy or sad.
pen writting
I see only what you reveal
and live as you say.
All my feelings have the color
you desire to paint.
From the beginning to the end,
no one but you.
Please make my future
better than the past.
When you hide I change
to a Godless person,
and when you appear,
I find my faith.
Don’t expect to find
any more in me
than what you give.
Don’t search for
hidden pockets because
I’ve shown you that
all I have is all you gave.
~ Rumi~
