Loving you


Do You Love Me?
A lover asked his beloved,
Do you love yourself more than you love me?

The beloved replied,
I have died to myself and I live for you.
I’ve disappeared from myself and my attributes.
I am present only for you.
I have forgotten all my learning,
but from knowing you
I have become a scholar.

I have lost all my strength,
but from your power
I am able.

If I love myself I love you.
If I love you
I love myself.
