Love Prayer

786

maybe

one day, Lord*

i will love You

more…

like Your rain

kisses

the flowers

with blessings

and Your sky

that

points towards

Your heavens

shouts Your

Names…

may

be

i

will love You

deep

like the depths

of hidden

underwater

caves

and longingly

like a baby’s

pure new heart;

maybe

one

day

Lord,

Your Awe

will be seen

upon my face

and joy

will whirl

in

me

like

chirping birds…

maybe

one day

Lord,

with Your Help

i will be

totally Yours,

no distractions;

not wrapped up

in the world

seeking its

ephemeral pleasures

and rewards.

maybe one

day,

Lord

i will

soar

with Your angels,

light up

the with the suns

and moons

of Your

Divine Love.

until then

i will pray

and

call your

Beautiful Names;

and remember

that

i

am nothing

within

or

without

Your

Presence.

*Lord i.e. Allah سبحانه وتعالى
