Let Me Carry, In My Hands

After reading an article at the BBC -- "The poet who can improve your life" -- I have rediscovered the poetry of Hafiz. Lovely. We shall look for more of his writings. 

This is the kind of Friend
You are -
Without making me realize
My soul's anguished history,
You slip into my house at night,
And while I am sleeping,
You silently carry off
All my suffering and sordid past
In your beautiful
-- Hafiz
