Once


Fare thee well to all that was….this is life.
Moments flashing past as bits of light…
You cannot understand there is no goodbye…no “fare thee well”….
Always you are in me…what I was…am…will be…as real as now.
You want to say Allah hafiz forever but you cannot…go…
Be free…don’t tie yourself to this sorrow here…join your first true love…
Allah…You think you will lose me?
No….Love is never lost any more than energy…
You are me as much as my life has been me…beloved…beloved… 

…I am here. I am always here my beloved…

 

I can feel your scales tipping back and forth swung by unseen winds…

You reach out to me even as you… slip from my grasp…do not fight…

Reach for Allah…smile into the light…cry the azaan once more like you once did…turn back…

Let the children remember your smile as they chewed your finger

Your stories as you made them lean in for the next word…

You never have to learn to say goodbye…we will meet where no shadow falls…

In this world only is the illusion of leaving…childhood…youth…

Until life itself gasps once more…

 

My beloved.
