The Absolute Love - Poem by Eslam Shawky

When I am no longer awake
When I can’t give or take
When my mind blanks out for hours
And my hands start to shake
That is when I am in love

When I miss the night of your hair
And the ocean in your eyes
When I miss the moon of your face
And dream of your smiles
That is when I am in love

When the time freezes with you
When my soul refuses to go
As my language becomes your name
And my ways only lead to you
That is when I am in love

When my maps become your eyes
And my treasure becomes your smiles
When every one is a lie
And you are the only truth
That is when I am in love

when I know that you aren’t mine
and keep on thinking of you
I’ll continue to live my life
Your memory guiding me
That is what I call the absolute love

Your absolute love
