[Sunlight] How ?an you be silent?



These sayings of mine are really a call to God,
words to lure the breath of that sweet One.
How can you be silent? How can you fail to call,
knowing He always answers, "Here I am—"
that silent answer you feel from head to toe.

in sokhan-hâ khvod be-ma`nâ yâ Rabbist
harf-hâ dâm dar shirin-e labist
Chon konad taqsir pas chon tan zanad
chon labbaykesh be-yâ Rabb mi rasad
Hast labbayki keh na-tavâni shanid
layk sar tâ pây be-tavâni chashid
