Yester Night And My Knight - Poem by nadia abduljabbar

Tossing my busy head
Up and down in my bed
In the third sleepless
Night, I was meditating
The incidents in my life
All through the last
Week together with God’s
Surprises and well prepared
Plans for me.

Only God knows how
Much I love to be
Surprised.

I used to think that emotions
Give Eve a beautiful GLOW,
But to my wonderful AWE
I’ve just found out: It does so
To Adam As well, and here
Is my knight sparkling,
Like the moon in the middle
Of the Arabic month,
As the moon in my birthday,
Well, I am born again today.

If I am the cause of that
Glitter on thy forehead,
Then I am blessed.

If I am not imagining
Things when I feel I erased
That GLIMPSE of sadness
From thy smart eyes,
Then I should bow
To God in thankfulness
For making me the source
Of such an honour.

If I am the one who
Brought this subtle smile
From its hidden corner
Up to thy lips, then
I am an adventurer.

If it is not out of my
Feminine vanity,
The extra peace I feel
Surrounding thee,
Then there is something
Holy in thy sudden discovery
Of my existence.

If thou could see me
When I became sure
That the name I see
On the metal plate,
Is not a coincidence,
Thou would have
Laughed whole
Heartedly from the
Fear that attacked me.

With all this distance
That separates us,
We feel each other
PERFECTLY.

What a destiny.
My fear ceased to be,
I will not insist on a tangible
Life or reality.

I will leave it to God
Then to thee,
And even if He or thou
Decided to leave it
As is, I will be satisfied
That the knight of my
Dreams once felt me.

    One who keeps subtle smile
    From the hidden corner of the world
    Is always an adventurer.
