Her World is Mine


Holding on my hand

Strolling away

IMG_8326

How could I resist

A tender baby’s hand

Embraced in mine

***

How could I let go

Of baby’s little fingers

Wrapped around mine

IMG_8323

How could I hold onto

Fears, worries, illusions

When angels hover, forever, by my side

IMG_8333

My heart is giggling
Her hand in mine

My mind is fizzing
Her world is mine

IMG_8345

I came from there
Have always been
There I belong
Her world is mine

IMG_8332

Where fairies dance

In lavender valleys

Where grass grows wild

.

Where butterflies have names

And grasshoppers play games

Back-floating they dream

.

Where babies dive

Splashing in rivers

Of lilies and jasmine

.

Where angels swim

In milkyways

Leaving trails of stardust behind

IMG_8347

I came from there
Have always been
There I belong
Her world is mine

IMG_8348

Floating with angels

Smiling at rabbits

Chatting to fairies

My heart is giggling
Her hand in mine

IMG_8327

Look look up there
Flapping my wings
Jumping high then falling down
Her hand in mine

IMG_8345

Her eyes of stars
Glowing with glee
Such innocent face

Such radiant light
And heavenly grace

O sweet my baby
Tender and pure
O smile my baby

Come heal and cure

Your hand in mine
Your world is mine

IMG_8349

I look at her
In awesome wonder

Then sings my soul
Her hand in mine

Tiny and tender

Her hand in mine

IMG_8326

I look at her
In awesome wonder

Then sings my soul

Her world is mine

Serene sublime

Her world is mine

Her world is mine

  1. This whole world is mine; God gave the whole world to me.

    And, then, one day, non humans created nationalisms.

    But, hardly can we distinguish anymore the humans from the non humans.

    Yet, Allah, in His Infinite Wisdom, has still protected the life and humanity of many among us.

    To enjoy life, but also to do His Will on Earth.

    But, are we doing the job?

    The answer is very simple: NO!

    Both the words of the poem and the illustrations are a very powerful message for people still having humanity in their hearts and showing compassion in their daily actions and the highest degree of civilisation.

    THANK YOU, NAHIDA!

    Beautiful thoughts. How we as adults can rediscover the simplicity of joy, even in a country where the evils of apartheid are the constant.
