DO YOU LOVE ME ? poem by Rumi

by  Rumi

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.
