Truths of Love (19)

I said this to myself: “Once union is attained

I shall not leave the Beloved for one moment!”

Do not be surprised if, on the way of fidelity, you meet 

with torment before the Beloved can be embraced.

Water that flows down to the ocean

must twist and turn and rise and fall.

This lovely secret that was always in view 

I committed to memory with so much joy.

When the Beloved set foot in my district,

my wish vanished like an image on water.
