A River Named Love
There is a river named Love
Upon its banks lovers reside
S e p a r a t e d and United by Love
All in love.
Desiring union they yearn daily
This river is food and drink
Their Fountain of Eternal Life
Lovers must unite!
‘How shall we reach our beloved’s gate?’
Frantic and mad they wail in haste:
“This mighty river has split one heart!”
Recalling Khidr’s auspicious advice;
‘One must take the leading plunge…’
‘The other shall mirror in unison’
‘Never again to depart’
‘Never again to say good bye’
Together in this river they delight.
United at last
Shackled by chains
Drifted by vicious currents
Into the Eternal Ocean of Love
Swim together upon the waves
Drink together the eternal drink
Drown together in eternal Love
Live together in eternal Light.
