The Light of Your Own Being

 

 
 
One day the sun admitted,
I am just a shadow.
I wish I could show you,
the Infinite Incandescence
that has cast my brilliant image!
I wish I could show you,
when you are lonely or in darkness,
the Astonishing Light of your own Being!
 
Hafiz

    A Love Like That
    By Hafiz

    Even
    After
    All this time
    The sun never says to the earth,
    “You owe Me.”
    Look
    What happens
    With a love like that.
    It lights the
    Whole
    Sky.

    A poem by the Sufi mystic Hafiz/Hafez.
