A Lover's Call Xxvii - Poem by Khalil Gibran

Where are you, my beloved? Are you in that little
Paradise, watering the flowers who look upon you
As infants look upon the breast of their mothers?

    That kiss was introduction to a great sigh,
    Like the Almighty's breath that turned earth into man.

    That sigh led my way into the spiritual world,
    Announcing the glory of my soul; and there
    It shall perpetuate until again we meet.

    I remember when you kissed me and kissed me,
    With tears coursing your cheeks, and you said,
    Earthly bodies must often separate for earthly purpose,
    And must live apart impelled by worldly intent.

    But the spirit remains joined safely in the hands of
    Love, until death arrives and takes joined souls to God.

    Gibran has a Strong Soul
    That jetted from east to west
    And will continue to jet
    To clear many clouds in the Western skies
    In spite being not his mother’s tongue.

    How about if your read
    His verses of His mother’s langue…
    That will keep you sharing his soulfulness
    With Him in his phrases,
    That He filled amazingly long before
    He left the Eastern paradise. (Report) Reply

    As Kahlil also said - Reason & Passion... the rudder & sails of seafaring soul... so...
    Sail your smile into the air; it will reach and enliven me!
    Breathe your fragrance into the air; it will sustain me!
    Where are you, me beloved?
    Oh, how great is Love!
    And how little am I! (Report) Reply

    This one is my favorite. I have found three of his books so far and they spell his name Kahlil Gibran instead of Khalil Gibran. I wasn't really into poetry until I discovered Gibran's writings. Now I'm in love and becoming quickly addicted. (Report) Reply
