Remember a song you know

If you are sad, 
remember a beautiful song you know.  
It is really something living.

It can bring you to the place 
where it was created out of light, 
and you can feel that
for a moment.

If you do not wish to sing, 
if you are feeling shy or just too low, 
picture me doing so,
while sitting at a table with you, 
with maybe a drink in our hands ...
toasting something you would like
to clink a cup with me about,
my dear.

--Hafiz, from A Year with Hafiz
