i love this poem! must use it somehow

“Our Union” by Hafiz.

Our union is like this: You feel cold, so I reach for a blanket to cover our shivering feet.A hunger comes into your body, so I run to my garden and start digging potatoes.You asked for a few words of comfort and guidance, and I quickly kneel by your side offering you a whole book as a gift.You ache with loneliness one night so much you weep, and I say here is a rope, tie it around me, I will be your companion for life
