I am the one always near. There are so many
ways to touch me now. If you sing, your sounds
will press against my cheek in a way I desire. If
you dance I will become the ground you bless, as
happiness does this world. And if you make love
with another form and can satisfy it, any sighs of
respite – any congratulating noises – are also mine.
— Hafiz (translated by Daniel Ladinsky)
