Tree of Life by Rumi

 

  Though your life has almost passed, this present moment is its root:
if it lacks moisture, water it with repentance.
Give the Living Water to the root of your life,
so that the tree of your life may flourish.
By this Water past mistakes are redeemed.
By this Water last year's poison is made sweet.

Farsi

`Omr agar be-gozasht bikhesh in damast
b-e tawbeh-sh deh agar u bi namast
Bikh-e `omret-r be-deh b-e Hayt
t derakht-e `omr gardad b nabt
Jomleh-ye mzi-h azin niku shavand
zahr-e prineh azin gardad cho qand
