Wake Me Up, Rumi

“Those who don't feel this love pulling them like a river,
those who don't drink the dawn like a cup of spring water
or take in the sunset like supper,
those who don't want to change,
let them sleep.” – Rumi (13th Century poet)

Rumi, Rumi, Oh Rumi, please,
don't let me sleep.
Wake me up. Wake me up, Rumi.

Make me strong enough to be vulnerable.
Make me solid enough to be open.
Make me brave enough to surrender.
Make me wise enough to be simple.

Make me holy enough to be in my body.
Make me present enough to be cosmic.
Make me empty enough to be full.
Make me loving enough to be peace.

Make me powerful enough to be grateful.
Make me connected enough to be one.
Make me calm enough to be clear.
Make me still enough to be joy.

Make me holy enough to be in my body.
Make me present enough to be cosmic.
Make me empty enough to be full.
Make me loving enough to be peace.
