My dearest Pain:
has weakened me
has bedridden me
Peace be upon all those who seek
the relief from loss and heartache...
Peace be upon all those who seek the
sanctuary of their Creator to find
healing and caress...
Peace be upon all those whose hearts
are shattered by loss of their
only possession i.e. their loved ones!
It is time to learn how to
love and understand what love is.
When your heart breaks a door
opens to your face, beyond it the eternal bliss while at its doorstep
There are many who stepped through
this door and they sent us their
farewell in form of mystic Sufi poems.
These mystic poets, each an
scholar on a different matter of love and loss, bring to us many
hundreds of years after their death
a clarity and depth to re-learn how
I hope the English readers
make these lost treasures their own and extract from them the wealth to
enlighten their hearts.
Do not fear to fall in love
and do not fear the hurt of the loss, fear the numb unloving heart that
will bring you analgesic life.
