Truths of Love (45)

Better to say nothing at all of love, O heart,

than to say something useless.

What do you know of the bond of love, O heart,

except vain fantasy and idle dreams?

If the mirror becomes polished, O heart,

there will be no more distinction between lover and Beloved.

When the Beloved manifests Himself, O heart,

the lover will be annihilated.

A wave surged up in the ocean, crying, “No power exists 

but through God,” then merged with the ocean once again.
