M E H D I

Accept my greeting I am your humble servantA poem for the awaited Imam carries heartfelt and sincere greetings to he who like the sun beclouded is never far from his followers.

 Accept my greeting I am your humble servant

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is slowly      I                                        tune      I hear
eating away      hear                          your           the echo
my soul                 the                 sing                   What a
And as my                 birds    They                       beautiful
eyes shut                                                             sound
the world                                                              Bouncing
My ears are                                                         off trees
pulling the                                                            Down streams
curtains                                                                Through flowers
I’m drowning                                                        Carried
in the uncertain                                                    by the breeze

 

I pray I can open my eyes
To absorb your signs
To be
aware
of what is around me
I live in my head
I ignore
the world
my eyes behold
Through the filter of sins
Bound by the shackles of fear

 

Each blazing                                                 To set
sun will                                                          the sun
set                                                                 of oppression
Blood                                                             Heavenly body
has fallen                                                       in the dark sky
Rivers of               Each thin crescent will     To bandage
blood will flow      bring us into a full moon    the wound
The cries                                                       When our
have been made                                           journey
The sorrow                                                    will end
will continue                                                  We shall meet
Someday you                                                the answer
will return                                                      to our prayers

I am your humble servant

           Serve you
          Defend you
        Breath for you
      Master, I long for
     Accept my greeting
I am your humble servant
