Love is the Water of Life


*

*

My beloved friends,

“Love is the Water of Life”

Did you know Rumi said that?

Yes, Rumi the Great Poet said that!

*

Love is the water of life; it is the fountain of life

And it is the light of life that illuminates our soul

And awakens our being

*

Advancing towards death

Without seizing the Water of Life

Is the cause to our agony

*

The absence of love in our heart

Is the root to our jealousy

*

So now let’s drink!

Let’s drink the Water of Life as we please

*

So we could spread the joy to those who love us

And send the blessings to those who hate us

*

My beloved friends,

Let’s drink the Water of Life as we please

Let’s fill the cup of our heart with much love

And may the earth be forever in peace

*

  1. if others could read this poem, im pretty sure hatred or violence would disappear. nothing else but peace would linger.

  2. I love RUMI!!!!!!! My favorite is:
    “The minute I heard my first love story,
    I started looking for you, not knowing
    how blind that was.

    Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere,
    they’re in each other all along.”

    • Wow! I didn’t know that you love Rumi! 🙂 Great! we have one thing in common then.. 🙂

      I love his poems as much as I love Khalil Gibran’s and I’ll be posting some of his poems in future. You should read my poems “Whirling Towards the Divinity” and “Millions of Candles!” and you’ll see how I’m very much influenced by him.. 🙂

      Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy your visit! 🙂

    • Hi Secil,

      I have some Turkish students, but I don’t speak Turkish. I admire the language though; I think it’s one of the most beautifully spoken languages in the world. You are so lucky to speak it..:-)

      So here’s what I got from Googe Translate for your message above:
      “Hello Subhanzein.
      Welcome to my page,
      I was very happy to see you
      Thank you for your comments ..
      you are always welcome
      Stay with love … Goodnight …”
