When We Are Alone - Poem by Abdul Wahab

I had been here
many times before

in between these hills
among the green valleys

but the setting sun never I seen
so red

no taste
so soothing I got of the wind

nor the singing
of the birds so sweet I felt

as of now
hand in hand

side by side
along with you

you are with me
and we are alone

so the flowers bloom
so beautiful

like never before
I had never seen

The grasses so glorious
So gracious the moon

Over my head
No cloud was so playful

No sky was so blue
As of now

When I am
Either alone or in a crowd
