Looking for love poems to share with that special someone? Or searching for some profound passages to read at a wedding? Here are the top 10 Rumi poems for lovers, weddings, or passages to reflect on life.


Lovers think they are looking for each other, but there is only one search. Wandering this world is wandering that, both inside one transparent sky. In here there is no dogma and no heresy. The miracle of Jesus is himself, not what he said or did about the future. Forget the future. I would worship someone who could do that. On the way you may want to look back, or not, but if you can say, there is nothing ahead, there will be nothing there. Stretch your arms and take hold the cloth of your clothes with both hands. The cure for pain is in the pain. Good and bad are mixed. If you don’t have both, you do not belong with us. When someone gets lost, is not here, he must be inside us. There is no place like that anywhere in the world. One transparent sky~Rumi


There is a morning where presence comes over you, and you sing like a rooster in your earth-colored shape. Your heart hears and, no longer frantic, begins to dance. At that moment soul reaches total emptiness. Your heart becomes Mary, miraculously pregnant, and body, like a two-day-old Jesus; says wisdom words. Now the heart turns to light, and the body picks up the tempo. Where Shams Tabriz walks, the footprints are musical notes, and holes you fall through into space. Soul, heart, and body one morning~rumi

Rumi poems for lovers- which one is your favorite?


When you feel your lips becoming infinite and sweet, like the moon in a sky, when you feel that spaciousness inside, Shams of Tabriz will be there too. When you feel your lips~rumi


Can you find another market like this? Where, with your one rose you can buy hundreds of rose gardens? Where, for one seed you get a whole wilderness? For one weak breath, the divine wind? You have been fearful of being absorbed in the ground, or drawn up by the air. Now your waterbed lets go and drops into the ocean, where it came from. This giving up is not a repenting. It is a deep honoring of yourself. When the ocean comes to you as a lover, marry, at once, quickly for God’s sake. Don’t postpone it. Existence has no better gift. No amount of searching will find this. A perfect falcon, for no reason, has landed on your shoulder, and become yours. The seed market~rumi


Red with shyness, the red that became all the rose garden reds. The red distance, red of the stove boiling water, red of the mountain turning bloodied, a mountain holding rubies secretly inside. Do I love more your or your modesty? red~rumi

Someone asked once, What is love? Be lost in me, I sad. You will know love when that happens. Love has no calculating in it. That is why it is said to be a quality of God and not of human beings. God loves you is the only possible sentence. The subject becomes the object so totally that it can’t be turned around. Who will the you pronoun stand for if you say, You love God? the you pronoun~rumi


The sun is love. The lover, a speck circling the sun. A spring wind moves to dance any branch that isn’t dead. the sun is love~rumi

Rumi poems for lovers… these are beautiful and versatile for all occasions


This moment, this love, comes to rest in me, many beings in one being. In one wheat grain a thousand sheaf-stacks. Inside the needle’s eye, a turning night of stars. a turning night~rumi


Gamble everything for love, if you are a true human being. If not, leave this gathering. Half-heartedness does not reach into majesty. You set out to find God, but then you keep stopping for long periods at mean-spirited roadhouses. Half-heartedness~rumi


Love says, You cannot deny me. Try. I say, Yes, you appear out of nowhere like the bubbles in wine, here and then not. Love says, Prisoned in the body-jar, singing at the banquet. I say, This ecstasy is dangerous. Loe says, I sip the delicious day, until night takes the cup away. Then I insist night give it back. The light I see by never changes. The water of realization is the wine we mean, where love is the liquid and your body the flagon. Grace floods in. The wine’s power breaks the jar. It is happening now. The water of waking becomes the one who pours, the wine itself, and every presence at the banquet. No metaphor can hold this truth that knows how to keep secret and when to show itself. Love and i talking~rumi
