My Eyes So Soft

Song Notes

Music by Laurence Cole

Lyrics Daniel Ladinsky’s translation of Hafiz


Don’t surrender your loneliness so quickly.  Let it cut more deep.  Let it ferment and season you as few human or even divine ingredients can.  Something missing in my heart tonight has made my eyes so soft, my voice so tender, my need of God, absolutely clear.
