"Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds ways to kneel and kiss the ground." - Rumi


To live a dream is not of love
And to dream no more is without cause
But I have mine eye upon a star
Set apart by celestial laws

So if I simply carry on
And love without a living dream
How, then, will I transcend
The boundary dividing you from me?

For not the vastness of the heavens
Nor lost time between us spent
Can keep me from you, my shining jewel
And hinder my inevitable ascent
