Gift For You. ~Rumi.

“You have no idea how hard I’ve looked
for a gift to bring You.
Nothing seemed right.
What’s the point of bringing gold to
the gold mine, or water to the ocean.
Everything I came up with was like
taking spices to the Orient.
It’s no good giving my heart and my
soul because you already have these.
So I’ve brought you a mirror.
Look at yourself and remember me.”



Patience. ~Rumi.

“My dear friend never lose hope, when the Beloved sends you away.
If you’re abandoned, if you’re left hopeless tomorrow for sure you’ll be called again.
If the door is shut right in your face keep waiting with patience don’t leave right away.”
