Come then come

Rumi Mevlana used to say to true Sufis:

Come then come

Unbeliever or idolatrous, come

Sick or tired, come

We don’t know despair

Come then come

Even if you’ve broken the rules,

Commandments or ascetic principles, come:

We only seek

Who we really are.

Stand up and don’t worry about this ephemeral world

Be merry, be happy.

If nature, which is female, had been faithful,

Our turn to love would have never come

Our stay in this world is temporary,

To live with no wine and no love would be absurd.

As long as you’ll discuss about who created the world

You can never inebriate yourself with me and my love

Tell me, when we are no more, what matters

knowing who has or hasn’t created the world?

So drink, my beloved

As long as I can pour the wine, drink

You don’t belong to this world,

You’re a wanderer who rejoice in this world
