Harfa (Words):

Where did all the words go to?
The ones that we once used to speak with.
Will they or will they not come back?
I do not know the answer to that question.
.They seem to have wandered off aimlessly from one place to another,
flying about like moths & butterflies.
With just one glance, as quick as the burn of a flame; all the words have disappeared.
There is nothing more to say.

"O beautiful wine-bearer, bring forth the cup and put it to my lips
Path of love seemed easy at first, what came was many hardships. " -Hafez
