There is a Candle in Your Heart...

There is a candle in your heart,
ready to be kindled.
There is a void in your soul,
ready to be filled.
You feel it, don't you?
You feel the separation
from the Beloved.
Invite Him to fill you up,
embrace the fire.
Remind those who tell you otherwise that Love comes to you of its own accord,
and the yearning for it cannot be learned in any school.

From: 'Hush Don't Say Anything to God: Passionate Poems of Rumi'
Translated by Sharam Shiva

the candle has been there all along waiting,
and if you embrace Him He will fill you up
so why so many unlit candles?
because the outside does deceive them.
