Poem by Sehma Helaa
I want to see thee
when you soak in anguish
Bless those tears,
That deliberately wash,
The sorrow rocking over your heart in such a rush.
let me see that beauty
when pain and gloom finish.
For tears, lady sweep
The eulogy that the years keep.
Let me see in you the zealous bee
Muttering a farewell to the flower and to the tree
coming back to the hive
soaking in honey, trancing in glee.
I strive to see thee shining,
For time and tide wait for no Man
And when cloudy days pertain,
let ‘s ride the beam again
let me see you crying like a child
Beauty after the rain lady, grows wild
I have asked thy eyes to twinkle
Getting rid of what may cause a wrinkle
I asked the tears to be merciful
when they run they cause no fall
I promise lady to cherish your face
Making from your tears a diamond necklace
