We are the guardians of His Beauty – by Hafiz

We Are The Guardians Of His Beauty

We are the protector
Of the Sun.

There is only one reason
We have followed God into this world:

To encourage laughter, freedom, dance
And love.

Let a nobel cry inside of you speak to me
Saying,

“Hafiz,
Don’t just sit there on the moon tonight
Doing nothing –

Help unfurl my Heart into The Friend’s Mind,
Help, Old Man, to heal my wounded wings!”

We are the companions of His Beauty.
We are the guardians
Of Truth.

Every man, plant and creature in Existence,
Every woman, child, vein and note
Is a servant of our Beloved-
A harbinger of Joy,
The harbinger of Light.
