A love letter to Self from the Beloved

I’ve come to pull you by the ear towards myself-
to steal your heart, take you out of yourself and
seat you in my heart, in my soul.
I’ve come like the joyous spring towards you, o
flowering tree- to give your flowers bloom,
then take you in my arms.
I’ve come to give you splendor in this abobe,
and take you beyond the heavens like lovers’ prayers.
You’ve stolen a kiss: I’ve come to reclaim it-
so give it gladly, or I will take it back.
Flowers?
You are the flower!
You speak the word!
If others don’t recognize you,
I do-    For you are me.
You are my essence, my spirit;
you sing my song of expansion.
Become expansion, nothing else-
and I will sing you to my heart.
By birth, are you not a lion?
A lion hidden in the body of a deer.
I will pass you right through that veil.
Allow the blows and move forward-
you are bravery’s shield.
Yield to the power that shoot the arrow-
so that I can bend you like a bow.
From the rank of Soil to the Human form,
thousands of stations stand.
I took you from the next- I won’t leave you stranded.
Say nothing, and don’t froth- don’t blow the lid.
Simmer, patiently and I will cook you,
ripen you, bit, by bit.
You are the polo ball and I am the mallet-
the game is mine, and yet,
I am the one running after you…..
– Rumi
