streams from the tent of the secrets of God.
And Your breath has revived me.
How can I die in dispersion before Your gatheredness?
Like the child that dies at his mother's breat,
I will die at the breast
Of the mercy and the bounty of the All-Merciful
What talk is this? How could the lover ever die?"
The "deathless lover" in Rumi continues to speak
directly to the "deathless lover" in us;
and will do so as long as the soul has ears.
