Do not surrender your grief so quickly
Let it cut more deeply
Let it ferment and season you
As few human or divine ingredients can

Something is missing in my heart tonight
That has made made my eyes so soft
And my voice so tender
And my need of God so absolutely clear.

- Hafiz


found this in my blog cache, as I go through reading everything, re-tagging and making notes. Do not surrender so quickly - I think we have no fear of that. Grief has not gone anywhere but deep.
