قالوا تحبه قلت لا ميت فيه… احبه اكثر من حدود المحبه
They said, do you love him? I said, “No, I ‘die in him'”. I love him more than the limits of love
When I first laid eyes on you, a seed was planted in my heart. It sprouted and grew as my love for you evolved, as you slowly took over me. Eventually, I loved you beyond love itself. You held me against you in our bed and whispered proclamations of your love for me and I knew that the same seed sprouted inside you too. Safety is your name. Peace is your embrace. Nowhere else mattered, the rest of the world remained still, it was just us. Our own little island, a world of you and me. I am your flower, your softness. Why did you risk my petals falling?
أحب الارض لي تمشي عليها وأحبك حتى اكثر من حياتِي
I love the earth on which you walk and I love you even more than my life
Every piece of you is dear to me, I love to see your leaves outstretched. Everything you touch and every place you visit is lucky to have witnessed you. Knowing that makes the pain all the less bearable. I trusted you, deaf and blind. You—my eyes, my ears, my hands. You could’ve completely embodied me and I would let you. And I recognize you without the need for eyes or ears or hands. I feel your presence in my soul without the need for the shell that is my body. I spilled over into you and you spilled into me, watering each other. Why did you risk me wilting?
الله يصونه لي ويحفظه يا رب هذا دعاي في صلاتي وصلاتك
God preserve him for me and protect him, Oh God. This is my prayer in my prayers and your prayers
Everyday I choose you. And know that in another life, deaf and blind, I would choose you again.
