What Happens

bkim2

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 awaken 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
