Take one of my tears, Throw it into the ocean And watch the salt in the wounds Of this earth and men begin to disappear. Take one of my tears And cradle it in your palm. Mount a great white camel And carry my love into every desert, Paying homage to every Prophet Who has ever walked in our world. O take one of my tears And stop weeping only for sadness, For there is so much More to this life Than you now understand. Take one of my tears And become like the Happy One, O like the Happy One -- Who now lives Forever Within me. When a drop from my Emerald Sea Touches your soul's mouth, It will dissolve everything but your Joy And an Eternal Wonder. Then, The Beloved will gladly hire you As His minstrel To go traveling about this world, Letting everyone upon this earth Hear The Beautiful Names of God Resound in a thousand chords! Hafiz himself is singing tonight In Resplendent Glory, For the cup in my heart Has revealed the Beloved's Face, And I have His oath in writing That He will never again depart. 0 Hafiz, take one of your tears, For you are weeping like a golden candle- Throw one tear into the Ocean of your own verse And let the wounds Of every lover of God who kneels in prayer And comes close to your words Begin, right now, To disappear.
