The Alchemy of Love

You come to me
from another world

From beyond the stars
and the void of space
Transcendent, Pure,
Of unimaginable beauty,
Bringing with you
the essence of love

You transform all
who are touched by you.

Mundane concerns,
Troubles and sorrows
dissolve in your presence,

Bringing joy
to ruler and ruled
To peasant and king

You bewilder me
with your grace.

All evils
transform into goodness.

You are the master alchemist.

You light the fire of love
in earth and sky
in heart and soul
of every being.

Through your loving
existence and nonexistence merge.

All opposites unite.

All that is profane
becomes sacred again.

--Rumi
(Excerpted from “The Love Poems of Rumi” by Deepak Chopra)
