Gamal Abdul Nasser


Every time I see thy funeral
I cry and wonder I
Why do I cry?
Is it nostalgia for a true man?
Or is it despair from Arabs’
Miserable condition?

The last time I saw that
Awesome funeral
I cried and prayed
A lot for God to forgive
Thee for ordering
To hang ‘Sayed Kotb',
Not knowing what
Was in Kotob's books.

Before dawn thou came
To me in a vision
Waving and smiling
As if telling me not
To cry out of sadness
For thee; thou are in
A very good situation.

The end of this June,
I am waiting to see
Millions of young and old
Men and women ready
To say no to unfairness;
INJUSTESS,
They are going to wave-
As thou did in many
Occasions – saying
Hello to the new Egypt.

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
