Lord of the Dance

You have not danced so badly, my dear
Trying to hold hands with the Beautiful One

You have waltzed with great style,
My sweet, crushed angel,
To have even neared God's heart at all

Our Partner is notoriously difficult to follow
And even His best musicians are not always easy to hear

So what,
If the music has stopped for awhile

So what,
If the price of admission to the Divine is out of reach tonight

So what, my dear
If you do not have the ante to gamble for Real Love

The mind and body are notorious for holding the heart ransom, but Hafiz
knows the Beloveds eternal habits

Have patience,
For He will not be able to resist your longing for long

You have not danced so badly, my dear
Trying to kiss the Beautiful One

You have actually waltzed with tremendous style,
O my sweet,
O my sweet, crushed angel*
