What's love



Only Love Can Explain Love
Jalalludin Rumi

Being a lover shows itself in pain of heart;
No evil is comparable to this pain in the heart.
The suffering of lovers is different from all others;
Love is the astrolabe of the mysteries of God.
Whether love comes from earth or from heaven,
In the end it draws us to the Beloved:
Whatever I say to explain or describe Love
When I arrive at Love itself, I'm ashamed of my words.
The commentary of words can make things clear-
But Love without words has more clarity.
My pen was rushing to write its thought down;
When it came to Love, it broke in two.
In speaking of Love, the intellect is impotent,
Like a donkey trapped in a bog;
Only Love itself can explain Love,
Only Love can explain the destiny of lovers.
The roof of the sun is the sun itself:
If you want proof, don't turn your face away.

Aku tak mengerti
apa yang kurasa
rindu yang tak pernah
begitu hebatnya
aku mencintaimu
lebih dari yang kau tahu
meski kau takkan pernah tahu
aku persembahkan
hidupku untukmu
telah ku relakan
hatiku padamu
namun kau masih bisu
diam seribu bahasa
dan hati kecilku bicara
baru kusadari
cintaku bertepuk sebelah tangan
kau buat remuk sluruh hatiku
semoga aku akan memahami
sisi hatimu yang beku
semoga akan datang keajaiban
hingga akhirnya kau pun mau
