Reading Om Swami Ji’s post on Empathy, made me remember this poem.

The Subject Tonight Is Love

By Hafiz

The subject tonight is Love

And for tomorrow night as well,

As a matter of fact

I know of no better topic

For us to discuss

Until we all


Here is an version with music, which you can play along or listen as background music.

Here is another beautiful one by Rabindranath Tagore ji from Crossing

Let thy love play

LET THY LOVE play upon my voice and rest on my silence.
Let it pass through my heart into all my movements.
Let thy love like stars shine in the darkness of my sleep and dawn in my awakening.
Let it burn in the flame of my desires
And flow in all currents of my own love.
Let me carry thy love in my life as a harp does its music, and give it back to thee at last with my life.
