Beloved Nabi’ (SAW) I Imagine What It’d Be Like To Look Into Your Eyes
Beloved Nabi’ (SAW),
I imagine that when I’d look into your eyes
It would be like watching the glimmering moonlight under its night skies
Or even a beaming sunrise
That would dry up my cries
And comfort my soul.
There’s so much they’d hold.
They’d hold rays waiting to burst
With joyful laughter for those with thirst.
Enough cannot be told.
They would be like glittering stars
That would shine from afar
Touching those with scars
Igniting them to be bold.
Bold enough to try
To persevere in reaching the skies
When trying to follow the example of your soul
They’d be like those other stars
That received the promise of their eyes meeting yours.
To reach you like those stars by being bold
And by keeping a strong hold
Onto the love shone through your soul.
But when the nights get cold
With clouds that roll
In the light from your soul
I could then try to navigate this world
By learning from your life
As a help and a guide for me in reaching my goals
So that my eyes could finally get to meet with the eyes of your soul.
Beloved Nabi’ (SAW),
For now I can only imagine
What it’d be like to look into your eyes.
