Oh Lovers: Never, Never Abandon Love

I close my eyes and my Sufi teacher sings:

Since my heart became lost in you,

Every cell is longing for you.

Since my mind became lost in you,

Every thought is longing for you.

  

“O Lovers: never, never abandon love,”

the Beloved cries!

“Never, never abandon love.

For love alone is path and goal.”

  

Your glance alone shines through my eyes.

Your breath alone flows through my lips.

Your sweet perfume streams through my skin.

Your love alone sings through my soul.

 

“O Lovers: never, never abandon love,”

The Beloved cries.

“Never, never abandon love.

For love alone is path and goal.”

      Oh Samantha, don’t you just love this?
      What else is there to know in life? It’s all said right there.

      You just filled me with love by just focusing and commenting on this, the essence of existence. If we could but live this every second, every moment of our lives. Being in Love and knowing — really knowing — that it is both the path and goal. Wow! Thanks.
