What does life give me in the end but sorrow?
What do love’s good and evil send but sorrow?
I’ve only seen one true companion – pain,
And I have known no faithful friend but sorrow

– Hafiz Shirazi rahimahu Llah –

Love and playfulness


God wants to see
More love and playfulness in your eyes
For that is your greatest witness to him.

– Hafiz rahimahu Llah –

Chaos of love


Go running through the streets creating divine chaos,
Go running through this world giving love, giving love.

– Hafiz rahimahu Llah –

Every hour fate strikes at my wounded heart


Every moment I sigh in sorrow, for fate, every hour strikes at my wounded heart with another torment. Yet truly I say: Hafiz is not alone in this slight; so many others were swallowed in this desert. A group of dervishes. Khusraw and Shirin.
