Someone who hugs your soul?

Today, I read a very touching poem by Hafiz called “A Tree You Can Wind Around.” It spoke of an intimate relationship that most people long for. One in which is “always near.” One in which someone says “One day, my angel, you will realize you accomplish everything just by appearing amongst us…There is really nothing more you can do for us than you having…ever been.”  Do you have someone in your life that is always near, loves you and believes in you to the depths of their soul unconditionally? Many of us feel that love in the embrace of a child, a grandparent, friend, or higher power.  So how about giving them a call, sending them a letter or email – hug them the way they hug you! And...

  1. Awesome, I love the way that you express yourself ! Also love Hafiz, he has become one of my favorites.

    1. Thank you for your kind words. Remember the kind words of Hafiz from his poem "To Build a Swing":

      You carry all the ingredients to turn your life into a nightmare.
      Don't mix them!
      You have all the genius to build a swing in your backyard for God.
      That sounds like a hell of a lot more fun.
      Let's start laughing, drawing blueprints,
      Gathering our talented friends.
      You carry all the ingredients to turn your existence into joy,
      Mix them, mix them!
