A River Understands

"I used to know my name. Now I don't.
I think a river understands me.
For what does it call itself
in that blessed moment
when it starts emptying 
into the Infinite Luminous Sea,
and opening every aspect of self
wider than it ever thought possible?
Each drop of itself
now running to embrace
and unite with a million new friends.
And you were there,
in my union with All,
everyone who will ever see this page."

-- Hafiz
