The Moon is full and it’s my Master
Speak to me of no one else!
In my presence, speak of light
Speak of sweetness and nothing more!
Don’t share your problems or complain,
speak only of treasures that you gain!
And don’t worry if they think
you’re out of touch — say no more!
Last night when I went insane;
Love spotted me and called out:
Don’t worry, don’t scream: I’m on my way
Don’t wring your garments! Say no more!
My Beloved, I said, I fear not that …
Love replied: there is no other, any more — say no more!
I will whisper some secret words in your ear
Nod if you agree, gesture only, say no more!
I was on my way on the path of the heart
When a beautiful Moon appeared at the start
Just travelling on the way of the heart
is enough, 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!”
