''A lover asked his beloved ''


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 learnings,
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.
