O my Beloved


Picture22

.

My Beloved
 
I did not see You
 
But, with the whispers in my heart I knew
 
Is that possible?
 
Is it possible, a heart would fall in love,
 
With whom she never saw?

.

Can anyone who tasted the sweetness of such love
 
Ever deny?
 
Can it ever know bitterness?
 
Or think of running away?

.

Can prostrating souls
 
Accept subjugation?
 
Or ever engage in deception?

Oh my Hope …
 
I was little girl
 
Agonized with nostalgia
 
Went looking for you
 
Her sanity disintegrated, while searching
 
Couldn’t find her heartbeats
 
Her imagination inflamed… wild

Her sight estranged
 
Stunned, pulled up toward Heaven
 
Hoping to see your face
 
Longing for purification with your Light
 
Dreaming of a drop of mercy
 
Affectionate, tender, blessed with dew
 
Yearning for one moment of closeness …. Eternal

My Beloved… You are the One who Knows
 
If kneeling down would be a struggle sometimes
 
For this frail body, aching and sore
 
Soul never cease prostrating
 
Ever satisfied, care not for the pain
 
The heart does not know fright

Tranquil and serene

Hasten, my heartbeats, race your shadow
 
Fly above your imagination
 
Knock at the door of my Beloved
 
Hum your passion in supreme adoration
 
Scatter your poetry like shimmering stars
 
Meadows of flowers
 
Plaited daisies and dandelions
 
Scented lilac and lavender
 
Snowdrops, bluebells and butterflies

O my heartbeats, align
 
Standup and sway
 
Tune in and smile
 
Throb in devotion… infinite, sublime

In the name of my Beloved, sing
 
Until you melt away …
 
And perish …
 
In the name of my Beloved, sing
 
Until
 
You return

  1. I wish I could meet and speak with one single soul who claims that he or she loves?

    When did the word LOVE come into the English language and when did the word AMOUR come into the French language and in Christian doctrine? The answer will surprise and baffle most of us.

  2. My wife says she loves me and I say I love her, but I have taught her to trust no human on earth unless she has met with some angels and they of course do exist among us (I must be one of them! Ha.) And to love Allah, the Last Prophet , peace and blessings be upon him, and the Struggle in Allah’s Path before anything and anybody else.

    When Christians and others accuse Muslims of not having an ALL LOVING God, they do not know what they are talking about.

    In there lies the secret of a happy earthly life even in the midst of the worst of misfortunes and calamities.
