This is the kind of Friend
You are-
Without making me realize
My soul’s anguished history,
You slip into my house at night,
And while I am sleeping,
You silently carry off
All my suffering and sordid past
In Your beautiful
Hands.

Who Am I?

.

O friends on this path,
My eyes are no longer my eyes.
A sweetness has entered through them,
Has pierced through to my heart.
How long did I stand in the house of this body
And stare at the road?
My Beloved is a steeped herb, he has cured me for life.
____ belongs to ____, the One Who Lifts All,
And everyone says she is mad.

Who Am I?

.

What fears can yet assail thee now?
All that I fear is but lose thee.
Love’s whole possession I entreat,
____ make my soul thine own abode,
And I will build a nest so sweet
It may not be too poor for God.

Who Am I?
