How very close
is your soul with mine
i know for sure
everything you think
goes through my mind

i am with you
now and doomsday
not like a host
caring for you

at a feast alone
with you i am happy
all the times
the time i offer my life

or the time
you gift me your love
offering my life
is a profitable venture

each life i give
you pay in turn
a hundred lives again
in this house

there are a thousand
dead and still souls
making you stay
as this will be yours

a handful of earth
cries aloud
i used to be hair or
i used to be bones

and just the moment
when you are all confused
leaps forth a voice
hold me close
i'm love and
i'm always yours

Moulana Jalaluddin Rumi
