Because I cannot sleep ❤️

Because I cannot sleep

I make music at night.

I am troubled by the one

whose face has the color of spring flowers.

I have neither sleep nor patience,

neither a good reputation nor disgrace.

A thousand robes of wisdom are gone.

All my good manners have moved a thousand miles away.

The heart and the mind are left angry with each other.

The stars and the moon are envious of each other.

Because of this alienation the physical universe

is getting tighter and tighter.

The moon says, “How long will I remain

suspended without a sun?”

Without Love’s jewel inside of me,

let the bazaar of my existence be destroyed stone by stone.

O Love, You who have been called by a thousand names,

You who know how to pour the wine

into the chalice of the body,

You who give culture to a thousand cultures,

You who are faceless but have a thousand faces,

O Love, You who shape the faces

of Turks, Europeans, and Zanzibaris,

give me a glass from Your bottle,

or a handful of being from Your Branch.

Remove the cork once more.

Then we’ll see a thousand chiefs prostrate themselves,

and a circle of ecstatic troubadours will play.

Then the addict will be freed of craving.

and will be resurrected,

and stand in awe till Judgement Day.

— Rumi

You’re not lonely when you have an amazingly adorable dog. His eyes twinkle brighter than any star in the sky. He misses you when you’re not home and waits for you to return. He jumps on every doorbell expecting you, the sad puppy face if it isn’t you and the joy dance if it’s you. The way he struggles with all the mess around to find a place next to you and hints you to hug him and move out for a stroll, the way he chases you all over the place and licks all over your face. He is someone who’ll never say he loves you, but always will. His love for you is self-forgetful, indestructible and timeless. A dog is an unfeigned  lover and his heart, a gem nowhere else to be found. You mean the world to him. And he’ll never let you feel down.
