Here you will find the Poem I Have a Fire for You in my Mouth of poet Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi

I Have a Fire for You in my Mouth


I have a fire for you in my mouth, but I have a hundred seals 
on my tongue. 
The flames which I have in my heart would make one mouth- 
ful of both worlds. 
Though the entire world should pass away, without the world 
I possess the kingdom of a hundred worlds. 
Caravans which are loaded with sugar I have in motion for 
the Egypt of nonexistence. 
The drunkenness of love makes me unaware whether I have 
profit of loss therefrom. 
The body?s eye was scattering pearls because of love, till now 
I have a pearl-scattering soul. 
I am not housebound, for like Jesus I have a home in the fourth 
Thanks be to Him who gives soul to the body; if the soul 
should depart, yet I have the soul of the soul. 
Seek from me that which Shams-e Tabrizi has bestowed, for 
I have the same.
