48. To get up, to meditate

To get up early in the morning
Is one thing;
To meditate soulfully
Is something else.

If I fail to get up early
In the morning,
How can I meditate?
Again, if I get up
And do not meditate well,
I just torture my poor body.

O my body,
From now on I shall use you
Only for God's sake.
O my soul,
From now on I shall use you
Only for God's sake.
