HAFIZ: What Happens


What happens when your soul
begins to awaken your eyes
and your heart
and the cells of your body
to the great Journey of Love?

First there is wonderful laughter
and probably precious tears
and a hundred sweet promises
and those heroic vows
no one can ever keep.

But still God is delighted
and amused you once tried to be a saint.

What happens when your soul begins to awake in this world
to our deep need to love and serve the Friend?

Oh, the Beloved will send you
one of his wonderful, wild companions --

Like Hafiz.

You can be in the Master's presence,

Yet be a thousand miles away.

You can be a thousand miles away,

Yet be in the Master's presence.

How this is so!
