Rumi ♡ - I and thou

Blessed time! when we are sitting,
I and thou,
With two forms and only one soul,
I and thou.
Fragrance, song of birds, they quicken
When we come into the garden,
I and thou.
All the stars of heaven hurry
to see us,
And we show them our own moon,
I and thou.
I and thou without words, without
I and thou -
In delight we are united,
I and thou.
Sugar chew the heaven's parrots
in that place
Where we're sitting, laughing sweetly,
I and thou.
Strange that I and thou together in this nook
Are apart yet thousand miles, see -
I and thou.
One form in this dust, the other
in that land,
Sweet eternal Paradise there. . . .
I and thou.

{Divan 2214)
