HAPPY NEW YEAR !!

Awake awhile.
 
It does not have to
be
Forever,
Right now.
 
One step upon the Sky’s soft
skirt
Would be enough.
 
Hafiz,
Awake
awhile.
Just one True moment of Love
Will last for days.
 
Rest all your elaborate
plans and tactics
For Knowing Him,
For they are all just frozen spring
buds
Far,
So far from Summer’s Divine Gold.
 
Awake, my dear.
Be kind
to your sleeping heart.
Take it out into the vast fields of Light
And let
it breathe.
 
Say,
“Love,
Give me
back my wings.
Lift me,
Lift me nearer.”
 
Say to the sun and
moon,
Say to our dear Friend,
 
“I will take You up now,
Beloved,
On that wonderful Dance You promised.”
 
~ Hafiz ~
