Rumi loves, love too!

This forever-ness of bleak, bitter coldness has bitten not only my ears, fingers and toes but also chilled me to the core and numbed my heart. And I am left feeling, well, nothing, but C-O-L-D.

So, today, I will leave you with one of the most beautiful love poems ever. It was written by Rumi, who was a 13th century poet, jurist, Islāmic scholar, theologian, and Sufi mystic. (Whew, busy, busy, busy man. However, did he find time to dream, dreams of love?!)

Be nourished by love!

* * *

I am your moon and your moonlight too.
I am your flower garden and your water too.
I have come all this way eager for you,
without shoes or shawl.
I want you to laugh, to kill all your worries,
to love you, to nourish you.
On sweet bitterness, I will soothe you and heal you.
I will bring you roses.
I too have been covered with thorns.

~ Rumi

  1. One day, not very long ago. I was feeling way down in the dumps. I was stressed out on the job with all the crap I was going through with the employees I was in charge of managing and the endless busy work from my boss. At that moment, a notification of an incoming email popped up on my computer. I immediately opened it and the first thing I read was this Line “Mommy, I love you” As I read the entire email, I felt the stress leaving my body. I cried and laughed at the same time. I felt the healing touch of love from my daughter. So yes, I can say without a doubt that love can heal.

    I love you more my, child!
