Hope

Only a breath apart
Our souls
Wrapped around
Each other
In this highly anticipated
Reunion

Forgotten worlds
Vowed promises
Reflect from your eyes
I recognize you
Undeniably

So much to say
Yet I lose my ability to speak
In any other language
Than unconditional love

My heart begs me
To reveal you
My solution
Promise you
We will make it
To the other side
Of our forever

Unfortunately,
I am not
The writer
Of your destiny

I just hold your face
In my palms
And wait…
For your lips
To greet mine

Silently praying
You’d inhale
Even a little bit
Of the faith
That whirls
In me

The song
We used to hum
Separately
Turns into a sweet duet

When our lips touch
And we breathe hope
In eternal harmony

    1. Thank YOU! I appreciate your visit and kind words more than you know. I truly enjoyed the Whole and its eternal message: “it is love that heals”. I look forward to your new poems.

  2. I am staggered by the beauty of this, Noora. At the same time I am stunned… by what I do not even know…..

    These few lines sliced through the heart like the swift slide of a familiar dagger. Such a pang! What a pang… as if I have written these lines with my own blood once… somewhere… somewhere lost, yet within.
    Speechless I am……

      1. I suppose the whispers of Unconditional Love echoes itself through silence in “one color”. Perhaps our “inks” are tinted in it, hence this familiarity.
        Honestly, Noora, while sitting here, savoring some of your poems gave me jolts none other ever has — forcing me to read your heart and read mine again.. over and over again.
        Thank you, my friend. For this mirror. After all Love is Love, light of the Light. Keep flowing in yours, wonderful poetess!
