I know this place by the sea,
Where only sounds of sea & wind,
birds & seals you will hear.
Ah to feel your presence there.
If we were by the sea together;
yet feeling soft & warm;
You would feel my voice, and I hope reply.
U can be sure that I would reply.
Soft & sweet. Like this;
See the rocks ruff & sharp.
Yet by the sea,
as the waves caress them again & again,
They become soft & smooth.
Like this place
I want to caress your sorrow & pain.
See it soft and smooth.
May I be the sea caressing you,
soothing, softening your shores forever.
With all my endless kisses
by: waves of the endless sea
I am the minstrel of eternal love
and will play the song of happiness.
When my soul hears music
and changes to softness
I”ll break open the wine jar’s seal
I am in love with the temple of fire
because I was born as the prophet
named Khalili Abraham
I am in love with soul and wisdom
I am the enemy of false images
The spring is arriving
it is high time for action
for the sun and Aries to get together
My blood is boiling my heart is on fire
and the winter snow is melting
away from my body
Someone’s love is knocking me out
and pulling me after itself very forcefully
Though I am in this hell and fire
I’m filled with honey and nectar
Though I am condemned to take this journey
I’m filled with the sweetness of going home
Now the time has come my sweetheart
kindly express what my tongue can never describe
Rumi, Ghazal 1395 Translated by Nader Khalili
