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
each scar
for you will not find me until
you do."

It does that- music- helps us to forgive.

Rabia of Basra
