The Raindrops

It’s so easy for raindrops to merge,
But It is harder for people to be as one.
Love is precious,
And when you have it,
Grasp on it so tight it feel like your hands are going to fall off,
And never let it go,
But when you have to do it,
Or someone else does
It’s hard to let go,
And heal your heart.
Love,
It’s the closest thing we have to magic,
But all the magic and money in the world,
can never buy,
you true love or happiness.

The Creature

Pull the curtain back a ways
Into an empty field I gaze
Desolate tundra far beyond
In the middle, a rising pond
And as the pond began to seep
From its black waters it did creep
It came from within and drew without
Tentacles, none but on it’s head a spout
It walked a ways towards the ridge
A black and blue creature on the ledge
As it turned to face my way
I let my eyes be led astray
I pulled the curtain closed in time
But now I dread that it may find
Me hidden here beneath my bed
My heart is pounding, I’m filled with dread
I can’t escape this fear I feel
That creature there, I know it’s real
As darkness fell I heard a sound
Heavy footsteps on the ground
At first I thought a kind of clod
But I knew it was the creature’s trod
I huddled beneath my shield of sheets
Its image in my head repeats
That creature walking through the field
For no bird or stone or other thing would it yield
It was coming for me and there I was
Alone and scared just because
When you see a thing with a kind of spout
Rise from a pond there’s no a bit of doubt
When you live alone across a field
Your loneliness is quite real
Here I wait wondering how
I can escape this being now
I hear it coming closer still
Beneath my skin I feel a chill
It knocks its fist upon my door
My existence altered evermore
When it finds me I will say,
“Won’t you please just go away?”

Deepest Loss

I knew when I first saw her she looked like another me,
But yet so jolly and so carefree,
Whereas I was quite serious and scholarly,
I don’t know how it started but our bond grew strong,
I knew this was the place where I belong,
Years passed by and our friendship reached to the extreme,
But now it looks like a lost day dream,
Someone came and interrupted my life,
The agony was fiercer than being stabbed by a knife,
Watching her gradually going away from me,
After that everything happened so quickly,
How would you feel losing a best friend?
Too late for the mistakes to amend,
Every time I see her my heart breaks apart,
No words to explain the emotions of my heart,
Now that she’s away it brings tears to my eyes,
How long can I keep myself in disguise?
Seeing her with someone else the way we used to be,
From this discomfort will I ever be free,
After all our years together is that the reward I get,
This worry follows me everywhere like a threat,
I wish I had known what trust would lead to,
I wish someone had given me a clue,
I learned not to trust anyone entirely,
For the pain to resist cannot be conquered easily.

A Walk

A walk down the road
breezy morning sent a chill
long winds blew smoothly

Leaves rattled trees shook
chipmunks chewed the finest nuts
chickadees chirp-chirped

Farmers dump trucks and
rolling cars echoed whoosh-whoosh
the town was waking

Crinkle-crinkle crunch
all the leaves piling up
strong winds blow them down

Peaceful as can be
this wonderful morning walk
never will forget

I Came To Know Myself

I came to know myself
Naught else had I in view
To be able to realize this
I got enmeshed in love

I alighted from high heaven
To pour a cascade of love
Became Sajjad to mount the gallows
Just to have my head cut off

I treated the markets of egypt
Just to be sold for a slave
I speak the bare truth
To speak of my sojourn on earth.

Blessings From Within

I know that you don’t know me yet, nor have we yet embraced.
You’ve only seen my silhouette, a shadow of my face.
You may have felt me move at times, and wondered if it’s me?
And pictured how my eyes will look, and what they’ll one day see.
You’ve thought about my button nose, and soft pink little lips,
and stared at black and whites so long, just to catch a glimpse.
My cheeks are getting chubbier each week that’s going by,
When first my heartbeat you did hear, the tears came to your eyes!
Ten fingers on my tiny hands, and just as many toes,
will help me learn so many things as my body grows.
I know you’ve wondered if my hair is blonde or brown or red?
But I also know that you will smile if I come out bald instead!

I sleep now warm and peaceful, in my cozy, sheltered world,
knowing somehow deep within, how much I am adored.
The tick tock of your heartbeat soothes me night and day,
and the muffled sound of your soft voice assures me I’m okay.
Another voice I recognize – it’s deep, yet gentle too.
It projects a love that’s just for me, yet heard outside of you.
It tells you just how much you’re loved, and says the same to me.
Although I don’t yet understand, I know it’s my Daddy!

Soon that moment will arrive, our journey will begin…
You’ll cradle me within your arms and feel my warm, soft skin.
You’ll have to teach me all you know, so helpless I’ll start out,
I’ll look to you for everything and try to make you proud.

And although you both worry that you might not get it right,
don’t you know that I will think you’re perfect in my sight?!
So never doubt within your heart, He’ll guide you what to do.
I do know just one thing you don’t…
God chose me just for you!!

Voices

The flame made a flicker
Each time much quicker
Night turned to day
Day turned to night
Outside my window appeared the pale moonlight
Creating shadows upon the walls
Six feet,seven feet tall
Stars danced
And the shadows pranced
Menacing,beckoning
Whispering in my ear
“Come closer, there’s nothing to fear”
Nothing to fear they said
Filling me with lies inside my head
My mouth partly open, I attempted to scream
“Leave me alone” was all I could say
It’s all just a dream that will soon go away
Taunting,teasing
The shadows caved in
Becoming their prisoner
I cannot win.
