Thief of Sleep - Rumi

Thief of Sleep (work in progress)

Inspired by:

When the sweet glance of my true love caught my eyes,
Like alchemy, it transformed my copper-like soul.
I searched for Him with a thousand hands,
He stretched out His arms and clutched my feet.

From Thief of Sleep
by Rumi
Translated by Shahram Shiva
