Thank you Linda for The Gift of Hafiz. I read him again today and found my own poem inside-
the eyes before me
look into the eyes of every lover and say
do not worry that your cutting word, your wounded-ness, your indifference or un-knowing will cause me pain.
your gifts are gifts
I drink from you like a cup that will bring me salvation
because you will
for no good reason
but that you are here.
