If once in this world I win a moment with Rumi

If once in this world 
I win a moment with you, 

both worlds I'd trample 
under a dance of triumph. 

Oh, Beloved,
in this world I'm so drunk

now only stories of drunkenness
and revelry pass my lips.

~ Rumi
From Breathing Truth Quotations from Jalaluddin Rumi
