SPIRITUAL POEMS: “I am so glad” by Hafiz

“I am so glad”

 

Start seeing everything as God,

But keep it a secret.

Become like a man who is Awestruck

And Nourished

Listening to the Golden Nightingale

Sing in a beautiful foreign language

While God invisibly nests

Upon its tongue.

Hafiz,

Who can you tell in this world

That when a dog runs up to you

Wagging its ecstatic tail,

You lean down and whisper in its ear,

“Beloved,

I am so glad You are happy to see me.

Beloved,

I am so glad,

So very glad You have come.”

by Hafiz
