"My eyes?" I asked.







"My eyes?" I asked. 
She said, "Look for me."
I then asked, "My gut?" 

"Let it sigh for me."
"And my heart?" I asked. 
"What's in it?" said she.
I said, "Pain for you." 
"Then keep it for me."

~ Moulana Rumi ~
[Sufi mystic, great poet, 13th Century CE, Iran ]


Original Persian:
گفتم چشمم، گفت براهش میدار
گفتم جگرم،گفت پرآهش میدار
گفتم که دلم، گفت چه داری در دل
گفتم غم تو، گفت نگاهش میدار
