“I smile like a flower not only with my lips”

 

I smile like a flower not only with my lips
but with my whole being
for I am alone with the King and
have lost myself in him.

At dawn your flame seized my heart
but left behind my body.
I will shout and raise havoc until
you come back for me tonight.

My Beloved, do not let anger estrange my heart
be generous, invite me to your feast.
Let no one be deprived of the joy
of your company.

by Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi

English version by Azima Melita Kolin and Maryam Mafi
Original Language Persian/Farsi & Turkish

from Rumi: Hidden Music, Translated by Azima Melita Kolin / Translated by Maryam Mafi
