Our Union Could Be Like Hafiz

Our union could be 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 ask for a few words
of comfort and guidance,
I quickly kneel at your side
offering you this,
as a Gift.

You ache with loneliness one night
so much you weep,
and I say,
Here's a rope tie it around me,
I will be your companion for life.

~ Hafiz
