Come, Come, Whoever You Are - Poem by Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi

Wonderer, worshipper, lover of leaving.
It doesn't matter.
Ours is not a caravan of despair.
Come, even if you have broken your vow

a thousand times
Come, yet again, come, come.

    Return, return,
    Whatever thou art,
    Return!

    Whether infidel
    Fire-worshiper
    or Idolater,
    return!

    This threshold of ours
    Is not a threshold of despair.
    Even if you've broken your vows a thousand times,
    return!
