Beloved, I sought you

Beloved, I sought you
here and there,
asked for news of you
from all I met;
then saw you through myself
and found we were identical.
Now I blush to think I ever
searched for signs of you.

By Fakhruddin Iraqi (?-1289)
English version by William Chittick and Peter Lamborn Wilson
