Unknown Poet

A lover knows only humility
He has no choice
He steals into your alley at night
He has no choice
He longs to kiss every lock of your hair
Dont fret, he has no choice
In his frenzy love for you
He longs to break the chains of his imprisonment
He has no choice

A lover asked his beloved,
Do you love yourself more than you love me
The loved replied
I have died to myself and I live for you
i dissapered from myself and my attributes
My present moment is for you
I've forgotton all my learnings
But from knowing you I have become a scholar
I've lost all my stregth, but from your power,
I am able.
I love myself, I love you
I love you, I love myself

I am your lover, come to my side
I will open up the gate to your love
Come settle with me
Let us be neighbours of the stars
You have been hiding so long,
Endlessly drifintg in the sea of my love
Even so you have always been connected to me
Concealed, revealed, in the known, in the unmanifest
I am life itself,
You have been a prisoner of little pond
and the ocean and its turbulent flood
Come merge with me
Leave this world of ignorance, be with me
I wait with silent passion
For one gesture, one glance
From you

I had this saved in a file on my computer and I cant recollect where I got it from. Google couldn't help me much. Do tell me if you know anything about it.
