How Far Is Mexico - Poem by Sayeed Abubakar

'How far is Mexico? '
An expert of Geography said,
'Thousand miles.'

'How long does one need to reach Mexico? '
A boatman said, 'Months after months.'

A pilot said, 'At least half a day.'

When I said to them, 'I reach there
within few seconds every day',
they all got astonished,
'How is it possible? '

I said, 'There are many things strange
which happen in case of love.
I am the poor Orpheus of Bangladesh.
My Eurydice Lorena lives in Mexico.
Every moment I visit her, she visits me.
We need not have any boat or any aircraft.
Our love is our Borrak* which explores earth and the sky
faster than the speed of light.'

* a miraculous vehicle which carried Prophet Mohammed (Sm) to the throne of Allah crossing seven skies within moments.


¿Que tan lejos está Mexico?

¿Que tan lejos está Mexico?
Un geografo diria, 'a Miles de Kilometros'

¿Cuánto tiempo se necesita uno para llegar a México?
Un marinero diria, 'Meses y meses'
Un pìloto diria, 'Al menos medio dia'

Cuando les digo,
Llegare diario en pocos segundos
se sorprendieron,
¿Como es possible?

Digo, 'Hay muchas cosas extrañas
que suceden cuando hay amor.
Soy el pobre Orfeo the Bangladesh
My Euridice Lorena vive en Mexico.
La visito a cada instante, y ella me visita también
No necesitamos un barco o un avion
sky Nuestro amor es nuestro *Borrak que explora la tierra y el cielo
tan rápido como la luz.

No pueden entender mis palabras.

*Un vehiculo milagroso que transportaba al Profeta Mohammed (Sm) del trono de Allah crusando los siete cielos en un momento.
