There are so many gifts
Still unopened from your birthday,
There are so many hand-crafted presents
That have been sent to you by God.
The Beloved does not mind repeating,
"Everything I have is also yours."
Please forgive Hafiz and the Friend
If we break into a sweet laughter
When your heart complains of being thirsty
When ages ago
Every cell in your soul
Into this infinite golden sea.
Indeed,A lover's pain is like holding one's breath
In the middle of a vital performance,
In the middle of one of Creation's favorite
Indeed, a lover's pain is this sleeping,
When God just rolled over and gave you
Such a big good-morning kiss!
There are so many gifts, my dear,
Still unopened from your birthday.
O, there are so many hand-crafted presents
That have been sent to your life
A Birthday gift to me from my dearest friend, Mohamed,
Now I share it with all to enjoy as well.
Always with love,
