You keep Rumi

You keep looking in a mirror in front of you,
Because there is no one like you
Except the image in the mirror

Where can I reach you,
Besides your image?
There is strength in the heart,
Soul and eye to see,
But where are you?

You are everywhere, and at the same time, nowhere
Proof of your essence is hidden only in You
But it also appears everywhere

For yourself, you are only One
For me, I liken you to everything
On your side, there is attainment and union
On my side, loneliness, loneliness

The road to the Beloved is folded
When one falls in the grief of separation
Beloved is the only friend to the soul
On the way to Beloved..!

~ Rumi
(You keep looking)
