Ibrahim's Dove

Don't let thy lips fall into sleep
I read thy eyes so well, so deep
Let thy mind rest so in that peace
And thy heart beat without a cease
I want thee be my sun and moon
And be so close like hand in glove
Though me thou burn and kill so soon
Please don't care when push comes to shove
When I see thee, like things are done;
My heart leaps up like slaughtered dove
When it sees thee my darling love

This poem is based on an allusion from the Ku'ran. It is when the prophet, Ibrahim, asked God to show him the way He creates. Then, God told him to get four doves, cut them into pieces and put each one on a mountain. After that, he calls on the doves and they respond and become alive again.Now, when I see you dear, my heart leaps as if it were a dove fluttering with its wings in a snare and this wing fluttering brings death to the dove at the end. But, once I hear you dear, I become like one of the doves that the prophet Ibrahim called on and become alive again. So, don't let thy/your lips fall into sleep.
