Prescious Love

Oh God!

I have discovered love!

How marvelous!

How good!

How beautiful it is!

My body is warm

from the heat

of this love

How secret!

How deep!

How obvious it is!

I offer my salutations

to the stars and the moon

to all my brothers and all my sisters

I offer my salutations

to the spirit of passion

that aroused and excited this universe

and all it contains

I have fallen

unable to rise

What kind of trap is this?

What chains have tied my hands and feet?

It is so strange

and so wonderful

this loving helplessness of mine

Be silent

do not reveal the secret

of my precious love


People want you to be happy.

Don’t keep serving them your pain!

If you could untie your wings

and free your soul of jealousy,

you and everyone one around you

would fly up like doves.


In your light I learn how to love

In your beauty, how to make poems.

You dance inside my chest,

where no one sees you,

but sometimes I do, and that

sight becomes this art.


(Love Poems of Rumi | edited by Deepak Chopra)
