Our union is like this:
You feel cold so I reach for a blanket to cover
our shivering feet.
A hunger comes into your body,
so I run to my garden and start digging potatoes.
You asked for a few words of comfort and guidance and
I quickly kneel by your side offering you
a whole book as a gift.
You ache with loneliness one night so much
you weep, and I say here is a rope, tie it around me,
Hafiz will be your companion for life.
Our Union, by Hafiz (Love Poems from God)
