Day 7


All I really want,
Is to love like this:

"Our Union is like this:
You feel cold, so I reach for a blanket to cover our shivering feet.

A hunger comes into your body,
so I run to my garden
and start digging potatoes.

You asked for a few words of guidance and comfort,
and I quickly kneel by your side
offering you a whole book as a gift.

You ache with loneliness one night
so much you weep,
and I say here is a rope,
tie it around me,
I will be your companion for life.
- Hafiz
