found these Rumi poems put to music on youtube..
The music is from the album Nights and Days from Greendjohn. The song is Happy Sadness. Always my gratefulness to Google for the images.
A true Lover doesn’t follow any one religion, be sure of that.
Since in the religion of Love, there is no irreverence or faith.
When in Love, body, mind, heart and soul don’t even exist.
Become this, fall in Love, and you will not be separated again.
By day I praised you and never knew it.
By night I stayed with you and never knew it.
I always thought that I was me–but no,
I was you and never knew it.
I am drumming, I am drumming, I am drumming
For my Love’s ever nearing union.
They say get a life. What is all this drumming?
I swear to the Love, the day that I stop drumming,
Is the day that I will stop living.
Not Christian, Muslim or Jew
Not Hindu, Buddhist, Sufi or Zen.
Not any Religion of Cultural System.
I am Not from the East or the West,
Not out of the Ocean or up from the Ground,
Not Natural or Ethereal,
Not composed of Elements at All.
I do not Exist, am not an Entity
in this World or the Next,
Did not descend from Adam and Eve or any Origin Story.
My place is the placeless,
A trace of the tracless.
Neither Body nor Soul.
I belong to the beloved.
I have seen the Two Worlds as One
And that One call to and Know,
First, Last, Outer, Inner —
Only that breath breathing
Human Being …..
