We have come…


We have come 
With words yet untold, 
And with faces full of mercy for people. 
We have sensed the yearning of hearts, 
And we have come with tongues that transcend any tongue. 
We have come, 
Taking the sky above us as our home, 
And all people as our family, 
And we have adopted colorlessness as our color. 
We have taken the seventy two nations as our siblings. 
We have come. 
Others came and left 
They lived, died, and disappeared. 
We have been born, never to die, 
And we have come, never to leave. 
We have come, 
In order to pour everywhere like the rain, 
To enter every house like the sun, 
And to touch our face to people, like the earth. 
In short, to love and be loved, 
We have come. 
~ Rumi
