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)
