don't surrender

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.

Is there ever a time when Hafiz is not perfect for the lonely soul? And in that moment of speaking, we are no longer lonely.
A soul soother, he is...
My need of God absolutely clear... what a beautiful line!
