This poem below changed my life many years ago.  It introduced me to the world of Hafiz and Rumi--in a way that God had sent to me.  I fell upon it in a beautiful way which was clear as water that God wanted it for me.

I fell across this poem 9 years ago and my life was never the same.


Don't surrender your loneliness so quickly,
let it cut more deep.
Let it ferment and season you
as few human or even divine ingredients can.
Something missing in my heart tonight
has made my eyes so soft,
my voice so tender.
My need of God
absolutely
clear.
--Hafiz
