“Do you love me….

Do You Love Me
A Lover asked his beloved
Do you love yourself more
than you love me?
The beloved replied,
I have died to myself
and I live for you
I’ve disappeared from myself
and my attributes,
I am present only for you
I have forgotten all my learnings,
but from knowing you,
I have become a scholar.
I have lost all my strength,
but from your power
I am able.
If I love myself
I Love You
If I love you
I love myself.

– Rumi
