Tree of Happiness

No end, no end to the journey
no end, no end never

how can the heart in love
ever stop opening
if you love me,
you won’t just die once
in every moment
you will die into me
to be reborn

Into this new love, die
your way begins
on the other side
become the sky

take an axe to the prison wall,
walk out like someone
suddenly born into color
do it now

Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi
(1207 – 1273 )
English version by Robert Bly
Original Language Persian/Farsi
