Forgiveness

“When the violin
Can forgive the past

It starts singing
When the violin can stop worrying about the future

You will become such a drunk laughing nuisance
That God will then lean down
And start combing you into His Hair.

When the violin can forgive
Every wound caused by Others

The heart starts Singing”

The Gift -Poems of Hafiz –Daniel Ladinsky, 1999. Penguin Pub.
