the eyes before me

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.
rest easy-

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.
