Khaled; my legend


ba

Khaled; my legend

 

I plait my poem,

 Letters of heavenly fragrance

Arranging its words

 A bouquet of scented flowers

I sang its melody

Whispers of soft musk

And pink amber

Pouring it down upon your heart

A cascade of lights

Tranquility and peace

 

I gather the pages

Of autumn leaves  

From the land of wonderful dreams

Adorned with warm paintings

Of rainbow colours and eastern nights

 

With a mystical thread of stars

I embroider my mythical love story

Into a book, like no other

A masterpiece of passion

A saint’s adoration of paradise

 

Weaving Joseph’s coat of multicolour

Of summer’s warmth

Of the glory of spring

And the longing in lovers’ hearts

Throw it over your shoulders

 

Then, with a child’s magical wand

I turn you into a sparkle of light

 Hide you in my heart

 Warming, and protecting you

To blossom with eternal life

That matches your name

My beloved husband

Khaled is an Arabic name which means eternal life, it’s also my husband’s name
