Heart-branded

“You have branded my heart,
It will not err elsewhere.
Without others, I can cope;
Without you, I cannot.
You are my wine, my joy,
My garden, my springtime,
My slumber, my repose,
Without you, I can’t cope.

And when you take the lead,
I become your footstep.
Your absence leaves a void.
Without you, I can’t cope.
You have disturbed my sleep,
You have wrecked my image.
You have set me apart.
Without you, I can’t cope.”

-Maulana Rumi
