Poems by Hafiz that touch my heart now…

My Eyes So Soft

Don’t surrender your loneliness so quickly

let it cut more deep.

Let it ferment and season you

as few human or even divine ingredients can

Something missing in my heart tonight

has made my eyes so soft

my voice so tender

my need of God

absolutely clear.

–Hafiz

******

It happens all the time in heaven

It happens all the time in heaven,
And some day
It will begin to happen
Again on earth –
That men and women who are married,
And men and men who are
Lovers,
And women and women
Who give each other
Light,
Often will get down on their knees
And while so tenderly
Holding their lover’s hand,
With tears in their eyes,
Will sincerely speak, saying,
“My dear,
How can I be more loving to you;
How can I be more
Kind?”
–Hafiz

Love each other like that…

“With life as short as a half-taken breath, don’t plant anything but love.”

Rumi

      Thank you Margaret for telling me this… And you are right… “Such a noble man and gentle spirit…”

      People have told me some beautiful stories of him visiting them as a powerful saint in Light since he has left the body. In these visions and dreams he has warned people of things, and he has offered healing. Such is the mystery of God.
