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,
--Hafiz, from A Year with Hafiz
