The minute I heard my first love story,
I started looking for you, not knowing
how blind that was.
Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere.
They’re in each other all along.
– Mawlana Jalal-al-Din Rumi, The Illuminated Rumi
We are far from day one
Days have come and days have gone
In my heart, love remains strong
You have been
You will always be
This love for you is permanent
