145 Inspirational Rumi Quotes and Poems on Love, Life & Happiness

Drown in those eyes

swim their liquid depths, sing praises of

her supple waist

Lose yourself in honey at her lips…

Today we stem the tide of words,

w-a-i-t-i-n-g

for the flutter of wings on

eaves of the future, when we shall say to the storm –

uncoil

Not even time can tame the tales we have yet

to tell

There is a tale lurking

in my eyes;

its beginning is you, and

its end – the lines of your laughter

I would say:

be the union of earth and sky on the horizon

become earth, foliage, sky, sea

But those would only be platitudes,

empty of meaning like my night is empty

of you…

I would say:

lover

But night is a cruel thing,

doubts ride on its wings

I would say:

you

The only truth in my orchestra of uncertainties

I would say:

you

My singular cry to

this deaf night

I would say:

you

My dream.
