" The minute I heard my first love story,
I started looking for you, not knowing
how blind that was.
Lovers don't finally meet somewhere,

they're in each other all along."

From Essential Rumi

since I went
to the door 
of the other side
and back

My soul is old and wise
My heart is calm

And only sometimes

I remember your ardent lips
delicate scent of your body
 your sweet touch

And the way 
you caressed my face
with your eyes

Looking at me
as if I was
the most beautiful thing
that ever happened

In your life
