#TenderTuesday . . . How I choose to love you…

*

*

“I choose to love you
in silence,
for in silence
I find no rejection.

I choose to love you
in loneliness,
for in loneliness
no one owns you but me.

I choose to adore you
from a distance,
for distance
will shield me from pain.

I choose to kiss you
in the wind,
For the wind is gentler
than my lips.

I choose to hold you
in my dreams,
For in my dreams
you have no end.”

🌙 Jalāl al-Dīn Muḥammad Rūmī
🎨 Alphonse Mucha, The Moon And
The Stars
