Here Someone Is Hidden Who Has Taken Hold Of Me And Does Not Let Me Go

Here someone is hidden
who has taken hold of me
and does not let me go.

Here someone is hidden
softer than the soul who led me
to the garden of spirit
and made me homeless.

Here someone is hidden
a radiant face as delicate and fleeting
as the ephemeral moment before sleep.

Here someone is hidden
like sweetness in sugar cane,
an invisible magician who has captured my soul.

Hidden somewhere inside, my beloved and I
have dissolved in each other.

No beauty in the world can ever tempt me
for I see only the face of my Beloved.
Tired and in pain I searched the world for help
until I found in love the cure for my pain.

Here someone hidden whispered:
“Pass beyond your tears and
you will see the broken hearted lovers
are the lords in heaven.”

Here someone hidden appeared
holding love’s wine
and to him I’ve given all my vows.

~ Maulana Jalaluddin Mohammad Balkhi Rumi
