I want both of us
To start talking about this great love
As if you, I, and the Sun were all married
And living in a tiny room,
Helping each other to cook,
Do the wash,
Weave and sew,
Care for our beautiful
We all leave each morning
To labour on the earth’s field.
No one does not lift a great pack.
I want both of us to start singing like two
About this extraordinary existence
You, I, and God were all married
And living in
~ I Want Both Of Us, by Khwāja Shamsu d-Dīn Muhammad Hāfez-e Shīrāzī (خواجه شمس دین محمد حافظ شیرازی), known by his pen name, Hāfez (Persian, 1325–1390)
