[Sunlight] "Congratulations!"



You have fallen in love my dear heart

You have freed yourself from all attachments

You have given up both worlds to be on your own
the whole creation praises your solitude

Your disbelief has turned into belief
your bitterness, into sweetness

You have now entered into Love's fire, my pure heart

Inside the Sufi's heart there is always a feast
dear heart, you are celebrating

My heart, I have seen how your tears turned into a sea
now every wave keeps saying

O silent lover, seeker of the higher planes,
may the Beloved always be with you

You have struggled hard, may you grow wings and fly

Keep slient my dear heart, you have done so well

-- Ghazal (Ode) 623
