A poem by Rumi:

======================== Lyrics ================================

You are my life, you are my life, my life,
you are my own, you are my own, my own.
You are my king, worthy of my passion;
you are my candy, worthy of my teeth.
You are my light;
dwell within these eyes of mine,
O my eyes and fountain of life!
When the rose beheld you, it said to the lily,
'My cypress tree came to my rose garden.'
Say, how are you in respect to two scattered things!
your hair, and my distracted state?
The rope of your hair is my shackle,
the well of your chin is my prison.
Where are you going, drunk, shaking your hands?
Come to me, my laughing rose!

As your sword
comes down on my neck
my eyes
will not turn
from your face

When my mouth
is bandaged shut
and this body
laid in the dirt
my eyes
will not turn
from your face

My secret beloved
sent me a secret message:

'give me your soul
give me your life
wander like a drifter
go on a journey
walk into this fire with grace
be like a salamander
come into our source of flame
fire transmutes to a rose garden
don't you know my heresy
is the essence of spirituality
then surrender your spirit
surrender your life'
