Send word we'll meet! From this life to you there I will arise! I'm heaven's bird, and from this worldly snare I will arise. Upon your love, if you should summon me to be your slave From all existence and its rule, I swear I will arise. Lord! Bid your cloud of guidance send its sweet rains on me soon, For soon as scattered dust blown everywhere I will arise. Come sit beside my dust with wine and song. Then, dancing out From my deep grave, drawn by the scent you bear, I will arise. Arise, my love. Display to me your stature and your grace. Clapping my hands, freed of this world we wear, I will arise. Though I am old, hold me all through the night in your embrace Then from your side young in the morning's air I will arise. The day I die grant but a breath of time to see your face. As Hafiz then, from this world's when and where, I will arise.
