The departure

by Sanjida Shaheed

Bismillah

Love has made me
Breathless.

How can I
Tend to you?

When I am
Lovelorn?

Love has made me
Restless.

My heart is
A hot air balloon.

Each time I shed
My burdens

I rise higher
And higher!

To The Most High!

Love has made me
Sleepless.

I am awake
And dreaming.

How can I
Keep my word?

When I have
Lost my senses?

Love has made me
Aimless.

How can I
Focus

On anything
But love?

My eyes are diverted.

From the seen
To The Lord
Of the unseen.

Our journey
Together
Must end now.

We traveled
Hand in hand.

Sharing words
Of wisdom.

We must part
In silence.

And journey
Alone.

Until we meet again.

In the court
Of Love.
