A proposition was made to me to change my journey
A competition between my mind and heart, like a tourney
It was time to find her somewhere down my dark road
I had strength, for all I needed was a map to decode
I prayed to the most high, for this path was dark and cold
At the end of path was the light and soon the scold
As I took my first step in to the light of love with hesitation
She stood there and in her eyes I could see the frustration
Still her beauty could not be described by words
I was even deaf to the beautiful sounds of the birds
For my love for her was for all eternity
Love, all I wanted was her company
I swear the light of love struck me like a lightening
I lay there with no hopes of her in sight of me
Why me? Why me? As I crawl to beg for her forgiveness
But Allah is the most forgiving for that I was a witness
But why she denied my love was my question
Because I felt weak and hopeless near depression
An unloved man is in one whose eyes you can see the desperation
The feeling that maybe I was condemned to eternal isolation
They say the bad end with the bad would this be my reality?
To be ignorant is to be a fool it had to be my hypocrisy
Was I supposed to give up on my one and only love?
The choice was not mine, it was made from above
I knew the hate in my heart, the darkness in my soul, was the reason for her unrequited love.
May Allah shine light on the ones with darkness in their souls.
(Amin Ya Rabi)
