You came suddenly.....! by Rumi

You came suddenly shook me from my sleep and vanished.
In my heart you rose like the moon
but as I glanced at you, you disappeared.
Having had a glimpse of Your garden,
 I have no more the patience to endure my existence.
One sip of Your intoxicating wine
has left me lovesick and full of longing.
Can a house stand when its foundations have been shaken?
On the path of love, there are many highs and lows
many unions and separations. 
Oh how endless seems to me the journey
to that wondrous place where my passion draws me.
~ Rumi
