Yester Night And My Knight


Tossing my busy head
Up and down in my bed
In the third sleepless
Night, I was meditating
The incidents in my life
All through the last
Week together with God’s
Surprises and well prepared
Plans for me.

Only God knows how
Much I love to be
Surprised.

I used to think that emotions
Give Eve a beautiful GLOW,
But to my wonderful AWE
I’ve just found out: It does so
To Adam As well, and here
Is my knight sparkling,
Like the moon in the middle
Of the Arabic month,
As the moon in my birthday,
Well, I am born again today.

If I am the cause of that
Glitter on thy forehead,
Then I am blessed.

If I am not imagining
Things when I feel I erased
That GLIMPSE of sadness
From thy smart eyes,
Then I should bow
To God in thankfulness
For making me the source
Of such an honour.

If I am the one who
Brought this subtle smile
From its hidden corner
Up to thy lips, then
I am an adventurer.

If it is not out of my
Feminine vanity,
The extra peace I feel
Surrounding thee,
Then there is something
Holy in thy sudden discovery
Of my existence.

If thou could see me
When I became sure
That the name I see
On the metal plate,
Is not a coincidence,
Thou would have
Laughed whole
Heartedly from the
Fear that attacked me.

With all this distance
That separates us,
We feel each other
PERFECTLY.

What a destiny.
My fear ceased to be,
I will not insist on a tangible
Life or reality.

I will leave it to God
Then to thee,
And even if He or thou
Decided to leave it
As is, I will be satisfied
That the knight of my
Dreams once felt me.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
