It Acts Like Love
It acts like love-music-
it reaches toward the face, touches it, and tries to let you know
His promise: that all will be okay.
It acts like love- music and,
tells the feet, "You do not have to be so burdened."
My body is covered with wounds
this world made,
but I longed to kiss Him, even when God said,
"Could you also kiss the hand that caused
for you will not find me until
It does that- music- helps us to forgive.
Rabia of Basra
