Tag: Yunus Emre

I am before, I am after

Poet: Yunus Emre

I am before, I am after
The soul for all souls all the way.
I’m the one with a helping hand
Ready for those gone wild, astray.

The lover is outcast and idle

Poet: Yunus Emre

My soul,
the way of the masters
is thinner than the thinnest.
What blocked Solomon’s way was an ant.

Night and day the lover’s
tears never end,

Those who became complete

Poet: Yunus Emre

Those who became complete
didn’t live this life in hypocrisy,
didn’t learn the meaning of things
by reading commentaries.

Reality is an ocean; the Law is a ship.
