"It acts like love -- music,

it reaches toward the face, touches it, and tries to let you know

His promise: that all will be okay.

It acts like love -- music, and tells the feet

'You do not have to be so burdened.'

My body is covered with wounds this world has made,

but I still longed to kiss Him, even when God said,

'Could you also kiss the hand that caused each scar,

for you will not find me until you do.' 

It does that -- music -- it helps us to forgive."

Rabbia of Basra
