My dear friend never lose 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

Seeing your patience
your love will soon
summon you with grace
raise you like a champion

And if all the roads
end up in dead ends
you'll be shown the secret paths
no one will comprehend

The beloved i know
will give with no qualms
to a puny ant
the kingdom of Solomon

My heart has journeyed
many times around the world
but has never found
and will never find
such a beloved again

Ah i better keep silence
i know this endless love
will surely arrive
for you and you and you
