You have fallen in love my dear heart

by Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi

English version by Azima Melita Kolin and Maryam Mafi
Original Language Persian/Farsi

You have fallen in love my dear heart
Congratulations!

You have freed yourself from all attachments
Congratulations!

You have given up both worlds to be on your own
the whole creation praises your solitude
Congratulations!

Your disbelief has turned into belief
your bitterness, into sweetness
Congratulations!

You have now entered into Love's fire, my pure heart
Congratulations!

Inside the Sufi's heart there is always a feast
dear heart, you are celebrating
Congratulations!

My heart, I have seen how your tears turned into a sea
now every wave keeps saying
Congratulations!

O silent lover, seeker of the higher planes,
may the Beloved always be with you
Congratulations!

You have struggled hard, may you grow wings and fly
Congratulations!

Keep silent my dear heart, you have done so well
Congratulations!
