the day i noticed Your opening gaze, i became sacred

although i have become old
and tired, and unable
the thought of You makes me young again

thank God for whatever i asked and i received
and the struggles of my courage have been won at last

young blossom, enjoy the wealth
because under Your shadow
i become the nightingle of the world's garden

in the beginning i didn't know the kiosk of my self
in the school of Your sorrow i turned into such a wise person

the door of meaning opened to my heart
the day i became one of the residence
at the door of the tavern keeper

The day i noticed Your opening gaze,
i became sacred

the day i noticed Your opening gaze,
i became sacred

As corruption descended upon the last of the world
i am old and there have been as an unfaithful friend

this passage of age has made me ancient
but i have been honored with good news lately

come again hafez
i am the certainty of your sense

- Hafez
