for you





.


You have no idea how hard I've looked
for a gift to bring You.
Nothing seemed right.
 

What's the point of bringing gold
to the gold mine, or water to the ocean.
Everything I came up with was like
taking spices to the Orient.
 

It's no good giving my heart and my soul
because you already have these.
 

So I've brought you a mirror.
Look at yourself and remember me.



–Jalal al-Din Rumi
