According to some entries from fellows online, Del Toro could have implemented these lines above into the movie being inspired by an islamic poetry like one of Rumi. Although another said that Del Toro doesn’t remember the source very well, a third friend named ‚Ronkaz‘ is telling that he or she just finished reading a book which was the origin of that poetic quote. The books title was „Divine Eros“ by saint Symeon and, according to that persons information, the book was written a thousand years ago.
Me personally, I don’t know whether I will research this or not. For those who are searching for the source of the poem this could be interesting hints though.
