My Friends Do Not Know Her - Poem by Insaf Jaleel

My friends do not know her.
She's not with me all the time.
I don't think of her often.
That is the greatest crime.

But once I see a smile
On any person's face,
It comes to me that I
Am only but a trace

Of someone much nobler
And more beautiful than me,
Who hides it in her face
And goes on casually

Without allowing me to think,
While I am in her presence,
How different the world would be
If I lived it in her absence.

In her, my heart confides.
I tell her everything
For who could give me that much love
And still be nurturing

By the time you read this,
I'll have forgotten her once more.
I wish, though, to remember
My mother whom I adore.
