SPIRITUAL POEMS: “Without Brushing My Hair” by Hafiz


Without Brushing My Hair



I get to you, Beloved,

The more I can see

It is just You and I all alone

In this


I hear

A knock at my door,

Who else could it be,

So I rush without brushing

My hair.

For too

Many nights

I have begged for Your


And what

Is the use of vanity

At this late hour, at this divine season,

That has now come to my folded


If your love letters are true dear God

I will surrender myself to

Who You keep saying



by Hafiz
