The Palanquin Girl - Poem by Fahad AlHafiz

1.
As I slip into my dreams
With the spell of your lullabies.
As I dip into my dreams-
my night. And both my eyes.

Why must you sneak in?
And wake me up therein?
My streamline goes turbulent. Impatient
As from across the glen,
You wink. And then flinch.

Perhaps you’d play catch.
Or play family in a thatch.
But you blush through the orchard,
Like a child from a stranger,
And his cards.

Perhaps you’d betray and snatch
My hands. And keep as your badge.
And triumphantly conquer
My tale, as you are
My teacher.

2.
As I slip into my dreams
Now why do you hide?
As I slip into my dreams
At this hour you chose this ride.


Why do you have to run?
I will not punish you for the sun.
You can bow the sun over my dreams.
You can reflect the moon
As we’d boat, into the stream.

You stepp’d a thorn? I’ll wipe tears away.
And drain them I will, in the pacific bay
Any storm to drench you? I’ll be the Atlantic
I’ll be the light on your candles.
I’ll remain on the wick.

You crept to a cave. Why don’t you stay?
I grow restless, impatient, to listen you say
Say you won’t leave. You won’t deceive.
Say that you’ll be mine.
Say that you’ll believe.


3.
As I slip away from my dreams
And open my eyes. And a day.
As I flip open my dreams
So much was left to say.

As gives warmth, the fabrics in the sun,
As feels tickle, the rain in the fun,
So feels love - lush as greenery;
High as the mountains;
Sweet as the berry
And endless as our story…
