I was dead, then living and breathing again.
I was laughing, then weeping, then laughing again.
The power of love's sweet magic overwhelmed me again,
healing the dull silence in my heart.
And then I was singing again.
I was roaring, bravely, with the voices of lions, again,
then softly, like the shimmering stars in the sunset, again.
--Rumi, translation by Bilal Hyde
