Thrice perfect is this love by Rumi

 

Perfect, perfect, perfect,
Thrice perfect is this love;
Empty, empty, empty
This flesh, and the lusts thereof.
Holy, holy, holy,
Thrice holy is this light;
Meeting, meeting, meeting
Today with the Infinite.
Rumi

  1. I am the servant of the Qur'ân [man banda-yé qur'ân-am] as long as I have life.
    I am the dust on the path of Muhammad, the Chosen one
    [muHammad-e mukhtâr].
    If anyone quotes anything except this from my sayings,
    I am quit of him and outraged by these words.
