I did not spell ROMANCE wrong but wanted to combine one of my favourite poets Rumi and Romance..and coin the word "Rumance"..

Jalāl ad-Dīn Muḥammad Balkhī , also known as Jalāl ad-Dīn Muḥammad Rūmī and popularly known as Mowlānā but known to the English-speaking world simply as Rumi, was a 13th-century Persian poet,theologian and Sufi mystic.
Here are a few of Rumi's best for just a little will definitely want to read more..

The minute I heard my first love story,
I started looking for you, not knowing
how blind that was.
Lovers don't finally meet somewhere,
they're in each other all along.
From Essential Rumi
by Coleman Barks

When I am with you, we stay up all night,
When you're not here, I can't get to sleep.

Praise God for these two insomnias!
And the difference between them.
From Essential Rumi
by Coleman Barks

I have phrases and whole pages memorized,
but nothing can be told of love.
You must wait until you and I
are living together.
In the conversation we'll have patient...then.
From Essential Rumi
by Coleman Barks
