Theme: Grief

Answer to Rumi

Don't run away from grief , o soul
Look for the remedy inside the pain.
Because the rose came from the thorn
and the ruby came from a stone.

I do not run from grief, Oh Soul,
I embrace it like a dagger to my breast.
I need not search for the remedy within the pain;
it is you my love, only you can set my heart at rest.

A rose, a rose bloomed gently in my loneliness,
growing where once was naught but thorns.
Now only blood red rubies drip,
the product of a heart bereft, forlorn.
