Love by Rumi

A mirror tells the truth

Come on sweetheart
let’s adore one another
before there is no more
of you and me

a mirror tells the truth
look at your grim face
brighten up and cast away
your bitter smile

a generous friend
gives life for a friend
let’s rise above this
animalistic behaviour
and be kind to one another

spite darkens friendship
why not cast away
malice from our heart

once you think of me
dead and gone
you will make up with me
you will miss me
you may even adore me

why be a worshipper of the dead
think of me as a goner
come and make up now

since you will come and throw kisses
at my tombstone later
why not give them to me now
this is me
that same person
I may talk too much
but my heart is silence
what else can I do
I am condemned to live this life

About Michaela

I am a wanderer and a wonderer, like you are. I love our journey and to walk in the company of friends – to learn, experience, share, laugh, cry and above all I simply love this marvelous, magical, mysterious life. I have no plan (cannot believe I am saying this) and my only intention is to be truthful to myself and others.

  2. Michaela says:

    Let me give you a tickle
    a tingle and a prickle
    until a small sickle
    of a smile
    becomes a small trickle
    of a giggle
    that leaves your heart
    the fickle

    laugh with me !

    Ah, this
    enlightenment.
    I could get really
    attached
    to it.
