Rumi - Rubaiyat - I hoped my grief to be my cure
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
From the 'Rubaiyat' by Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Balkhi-Rumi
I hoped my grief to be my cure
But I drowned in helplessness
You asked me out of kindness
'What is your wish?'
'What I want is You' I answered
'That I cannot promise'
