You’ve no idea how hard I’ve looked

You’ve 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.

– Jalaluddin Rumi
