The Lovers
--Rumi

The Lovers
will drink wine night and day.
They will drink until they can
tear away the veils of intellect and
melt away the layers of shame and modesty.
When in Love,
body, mind, heart and soul don't even exist.
Become this,
fall in Love,
and you will not be separated again.


From: 'Hush Don't Say Anything to God: Passionate Poems of Rumi'
Translated by Sharam Shiva
