How Could a Lover Fall ?


What could have caused your grip to weaken
that allowed creation to be ?

How could a lover fall to his death
from the arms of infinite
strength ?

How active you are in the mind sustaining such a great wall
that the sun can cast a frightening shadow
the world believes.

No one has ever really known sadness. No real God
would ever allow pain.

How then can a heart feel it is broken and in need
if we are held in the arms of infinite
compassion and
strength ?

That mirror you (God) stand before —
we need to gaze into it also.

That name you called Beloved
as I fell from your lips —
I suffer

because I did not quite
hear it;

so tell me again dear One
so clear:

I am
you.

– Hafiz
