He and I are one

by Sarmad

English version by Isaac A. Ezekiel
Original Language Persian/Farsi

He and I are one,
     like the word and its meaning.
Behold union in separation,
     like the eye and vision.
Not for a moment is He separate from me --
Behold us together everywhere,
     like flower and fragrance.

-- from Sarmad: Martyr to Love Divine, by Isaac A. Ezekiel
