The Friends of God....
It is the truth that flows from their mouths.
When they are silent, think them not to be mute,
For their silence is inward remembrance.
The friends of God, their glances pierce the veils of darkness,
Their ears harken to the call of the Friend for whom they are friends.
Their will surrendered to His will,
Their footsteps tracing the path to His abode.
They are immersed in the ocean of His light,
And although among us, drunk by the wine of His love,
Scintillating in the luminosity of His proximity.
O friend become a friend of God before this life ceases to flow
Enter the inner courtyard of His intimacy.
Breathe that air filled with the fragrance of His Beauty
And leave the care of the world to those whose only friend is the world.
