I am a servant of the Moon
Speak to me of nothing more !
In my presence speak of light
Speak of sweetness and nothing more!
Don’t tell about your problems,
speak to me only of treasures!
And don’t worry if they think
you’ve out of touch — say no more!
Last night I went insane;
love saw me and called out:
Don’t scream: I’m on my way
Don’t wring your garments! Say no more!
I said, my Beloved, this fear is for something else …
Love said: there is nothing else, any more — say no more!
I will whisper secret words in your ear
Nod if you agree, gesture only, say no more!
Along the way of the heart a beautiful
life-giving Moon appeared for me
Travelling the way of the heart
is a heart-warming journey – say no more!
I said to my heart “what kind of Moon are you ?” and it replied
This is unfathomable for you, move on and say no more!
I asked in awe: “Is this the face of an Angel or a human”?
My Moonheart said “this is neither Angel or Man, say no more…”
Please tell me what it is, I am uprooted in confusion, I begged
He replied “you can be uprooted and confused, but say no more!”
You who reside in this house of thoughts and images
Get up and leave, take all your belongings, say no more!
I begged my Divine Heart: show me your fatherly kindness
this is not how I expected Divinity to treat me!
He replied, “my dear son, you are right, but say no more!”
