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.


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,


I am so glad You are happy to see me.


I am so glad,

So very glad You have come.”

by Hafiz
