I sit here craving your presence I close my eyes hoping to feel you close All the things I busy myself with Seem to pull me further away. How do I simply sit still? How do I just be me and let you be you?
I tune my heart, my mind, my soul— into you. Help me dwell. Troubled mind. Burdened heart. But I was obedient and there was a purpose — this poem came from it.

Hafiz, Why carry a whole load of books upon your back Climbing this mountain, when tonight, Just a few thoughts of God Will light the holy fire. I wish I could show you the infinite incandescence That has cast my brilliant image! I know those habits that can ruin your life still send their invitations. But you are with the Friend now and look so much stronger. You can stay that way and even bloom! Keep squeezing drops of the Sun from your prayers and work and music And from your companions' beautiful laughter.
Keep squeezing drops of the Sun from the sacred hands and glance of your Beloved And, my dear, from the most insignificant movements of your own holy body. Learn to recognize the counterfeit coins that may buy you just a moment of pleasure, But then drag you for days like a broken man behind a farting camel. You are with the Friend now.
Learn what actions of yours delight Him, what actions of yours Bring freedom and Love. Whenever you say God's name, dear pilgrim, my ears wish my head was missing So they could finally kiss each other and applaud all your nourishing wisdom! O keep squeezing drops of the Sun from your prayers and work and music And from your companions' beautiful laughter and from the most insignificant movements of your own holy body.
Now, sweet one, Be wise. Cast all your votes for Dancing! ZERO Zero is where the real fun starts. There's too much counting Everywhere else! 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. What is laughter? It is God waking up!
O it is God waking up! It is the sun poking its sweet head out from behind a cloud You have been carrying too long, veiling your eyes and heart. It is Light breaking ground for a great structure That is your real body, called Truth. It is happiness applauding itself and then taking flight To embrace everyone and everything in this world.
Laughter is the polestar held in the sky by our Beloved, Who eternally says, "Yes, dear ones, come this way, come this way toward Me and Love! Come with your tender mouths moving and your beautiful tongues conducting songs, And with your movements - your magic movements Of hands and feet and glands and cells - Dancing!
Know that to God's eye, all movement is a wondrous language, And music, such exquisite, wild music! What is this precious love and laughter budding in our hearts? It is the glorious sound of a soul waking up! Filling up all the bowls at this party, taking all the laughs. I would like you to start putting things on the table That can also feed the soul the way I do. That way we can invite A hell of a lot more friends. No other kind of light Will cook the food you need.
With all the rest of your time, it would be best To try looking upon your self more as God does. For He knows your true royal nature. God is never confused and can see only Himself in you.
