Love Said to Me
Love Said to Me ~ Rumi
I worship the moon. Tell me of the soft glow of a candle light and the sweetness of my moon.
Don’t talk about sorrow, tell me of that treasure, hidden if it is to you, then just remain silent.
Last night I lost my grip on reality and welcomed insanity.
Love saw me and said, I showed up. Wipe you tears and be silent.
I said, O Love I am frightened, but it’s not you.
Love said to me, there is nothing that is not me. be silent.
I will whisper secrets in your ear just nod yes and be silent.
A soul moon appeared in the path of my heart. How precious is this journey.
I said, O Love what kind of moon is this?
Love said to me, this is not for you to question. be silent.
I said, O Love what kind of face is this, angelic, or human?
Love said to me, this is beyond anything that you know. Be silent.
I said, please reveal this to me I am dying in anticipation.
Love said to me, that is where I want you: Always on the edge, be silent.
You dwell in this hall of images and illusions, leave this house now and be silent.
I said, O Love, tell me this: Does the Lord know you are treating me this way?
Love said to me, yes He does, just be totally…totally… silent
