It Happens All the Time in Heaven

Book coverIt happens all the time in heaven, and someday
It will begin to happen again on earth—

That men and women who are married, and
Men and women who are lovers,

And women and women who give each other
Light,

Often will get down on their knees, and while
So tenderly holding their lover’s hand, with

Tear-filled eyes, will sincerely say, “My dear,
How can I be more loving to you; my darling,
How can I be more kind?”

By Hafiz. Translation by Daniel Ladinsky. Excerpted from Twenty Poems to Bless Your Marriage: And One to Save It by Roger Housden.
