 You must marry your soul. 
 That wedding is the way. 

❁❁

Every rose that is sweet-scented within,
That rose is telling of the secrets of the Universal.

❁❁❁

 Die, die, die in this love. 
 If you die in this love your soul will be renewed. 

❁❁❁❁

With every breath
I plant the seeds of devotion - I am a farmer of the heart.

❁❁❁❁❁

 I will soothe you and heal you. 
 I will bring you roses. I too have been covered with thorns. 

❁❁❁❁❁❁

My arrow of love has arrived at the target.
I am in the house of mercy, and my heart is a place of prayer.

❁❁❁❁❁❁❁

 My place is the Placeless, my trace is the Traceless, 
 ‘Tis neither body nor soul, for I belong to the soul of the Beloved.
