O love…

O love ,whose lordly hand
Has bridled my desires
And raised my hunger and my thirst
To dignity and pride
Let not the strong in me and the constant
Eat the bread or drink the wine
That tempt my weaker self
Let me rather starve
And let my heart parch whit thirst
And let me die and perish
Ere I stretch my hand
To a cup you did not fill
Or a bowl you did not bless…
(Jabran Khalil Jabran)
