A Quote by Shams-ud-din Muhammad (Hafiz) on journey, love, and saint

What Happens

What happens when your soul
Begins to awaken
Your eyes
And your heart
And the cells of your body
To the great Journey of Love?

First there is wonderful laughter
And probably precious tears

And a hundred sweet promises
And those heroic vows
No one can ever keep.

But still God is delighted and amused
You once tried to be a saint.
 
What happens when your soul
Begins to awake in this world
 
To our deep need to love
And serve the Friend?
 
O the Beloved
Will send you
One of His wonderful, wild companions -

Like Hafiz.
