Make Yourself Worthy of God's Love - a Poem by Rumi

Just a minor setback and you run away forever from Love (God)?
Except knowing how to spell the word
what else do you really know about Love?
Love knows a hundred different ways of showing off.
Love constantly flirts with you over and over.
Knowing how to flirt back with Love
that's how you get your hands on Love!
Love is always loyal
Love demands your absolute loyalty.
Love won't even look at a disloyal lover.
The Beloved (God) lives deep inside the heart of a true lover.
So there is no difference or distinction
between a lover and the Beloved.

گزيده ابياتي ازمثنوي معنوي حضرت مولانا جلال الدين بلخي"رومي" در وصف و تفسير عشق الهي

 تو به یک خواری گریزانی ز عشق
 تو به جز نامی چه می دانی زعشق؟
  عشق را صد ناز و استکبار هست
 عشق با صد ناز می‌آید به دست
 عشق چون وافیست وافی می‌خرد
 در حریف بی‌وفا می‌ننگرد
 در دل عاشق بجز معشوق نيست
 در ميانشان فارق و فاروق نيست
