What Happen's (A Random Poem by Hafez)


"Tibetan Pilgrim"
HongNian Zhang

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?

O the Beloved will send you
One of His wonderful, wild companions ~
Like Hafiz.
