You and Rumi

Blessed is the moment when we sit in the garden,
You and I

Two forms, two faces but a single soul
You and I

The birds will sing songs of eternal life
the moment we enter into the rose garden
You and I

The stars of heaven will come to look at us,
beautiful as the moon, entwined in ecstasy
You and I

The birds of paradise will be filled with envy
when they hear us laughing happily
You and I

What a marvel, us sitting here together
and at the same time in Iraq and Khorasan
You and I

One form on this earth and in Eternity
You and I.

~ Rumi
