The minute I heard my first love story
I started looking for you, not knowing
how blind that was.

Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere.
They’re in each other all along.

— Jalalud’din Rumi – Ghazal 1246 (Translation: Coleman Barks)

Lovers are in each other all along

  1. another saint says it like this…….moko kahan dhoondhe re bande ,main to tere pas me’…………….a rough translation…..God says to man……” where though search me ,I am inside/with you ever……”

    expressions well caught.

    • I found this:

      دقیقه من شنیده ام داستان اولین عشق من،
      من شروع به دنبال شما، نمی دانستند
      که چگونه کور بود.

      عاشقان در نهایت نمی برآورده جایی،
      آنها در هر یک از دیگر در تمام طول هستیم.
