Give me the pain of Love,
the Pain of Love for Thee! Not the joy of Love,
just the Pain of Love, And I will pay the price,
any price you ask! All myself I will offer for it,
and the price you will ask on top of it! Keep the joy for others,
give me the Pain, And gladly will I pay for the Pain of Love !
~ Hazrat Shams Tabrizi R.A.
