Looking for Your Face – Hafiz (c. 1320-1389)

From the beginning of my life

I have been looking for your face

but today I have seen it

Today I have seen

the charm, the beauty,

the unfathomable grace

of the face

that I was looking for

Today I have found you

and those who laughed

and scorned me yesterday

are sorry that they were not looking

as I  did

I am bewildered by the magnificence

of  your beauty
