[Sunlight] Open the door -- Ghazal 1171



Open the door, a novice has arrived!
Offer me a cup of wine and walk with me
for a while.
You don't mind long distances because
on the way you lay your traps,
and plan how to break my heart.
You fulfilled hundreds of my wishes, yet my heart
still hungers for more.
Your kindness warms and blesses everyone
even the sun bows before you.
Please, let me be your slave and silently walk
by your side.
I will find new meaning in every joy and sorrow.
In that silence
I will hear the voice of spirit, and freed
from this world
I will see another order where the end is
another beginning.

-- Ghazal (Ode) 1171
