The Day We Leave -By Hussain Alsultani 1965-2015 - Poem by Abtissam Ibrahim Obaid

The day we leave
What will we write
Above the crust of the time?
Do we say, we were born, lived, died
But didn'tplant any rose!
The day we leave
Who lives in our old house
Is he from our mortal backs
Or stranger about here
Throw us in the trash!
The day we leave
Who takes care of the deer
In the remorse field
And let pony's leg
Slit the torrent of nothingness!
The day we leave
Who thinks about the girls
As I leave my youth
And strangers like the death
Burn my remains
The day we leave, speechless, quite
As the wheat's obedience to the mill
Are we ghosts,
passed the life then disappear?
the daywe leave
will we come back again, or go
to go down at the distant
the day we leave
Is that mean, there is some one
Cleaned the life from us
And brought another creation
When we died and weren't?
The day we leave
How do we tell the remain about the truth
Shall we say, you are fired to the low
Because your fatherhas lost his way!
The day we leave
Does the guide door close behind us?
Then we stay in the reckless
Murder doesn't knowa victim
The day we leave
We willbehow much the distance that we left
Between the childhoodand elderly
We crossed her green banksthat
Andlike a memory,
We stayed atthe lazy bird's head
The day we leave
By the thirst
We will throw the sleepy rivers
And splash the children by kiss
But..the rustichands
Will take us without a while
The day we leave\written by HusseinAlsultani\ 1965-2015
