This World Is No Match For Your Love ~ Poem By Rumi

MauiThe World is no Match for your Love

This world is no match for your Love.
Being away from you
is death aiming to take my soul away.
My heart, so precious,
I won’t trade for a hundred thousand souls.
Your one smile takes it for free.

~ Rumi

  1. Hey, Angela. Great seeing you in class this morning! I’m not sure how I managed to come across your blog within 1 minute of coming online, but I guess that’s cool.

    This is a beautiful poem (and photo). Cool stuff!

    I looked up “Where the wild things are” (you and I are probably 2 out of 100 people who haven’t seen it), and it came out in 2009, so I guess it’s not in theaters anymore. :-/ Sadness…. I guess I’ll have to find another way to learn about the “Max” in that story.



    1. Max,

      It was great meeting you as well, and now I really want to see it too! Perhaps we will just have to have our very own mini book club, hahaha! You must rarely meet anyone with that name, so cool and unique! Funny that there was another Angela in class today actually! Hope to see you again!
