Maybe the grocery list
Maybe if we read between the lines,
just maybe, we might find
the tired handwriting singing out loud -
"I want to bake you your favourite cake"
"or we could share this loaf from the bakery
and you can have the bigger slice"
"I love you."
I wrote this poem after going through a rough time following an accident last week, and then realizing how beautiful the healing process was, to hear and be reminded of Allah SWT even more.
May we always be reminded. Ameen.
Maybe bad things happen
replacing the great
so we can hear His name often.
Like in the countless times we cry "O Allah"
in between the tears in our prayers,
and the countless ways our loved ones mention His name
in their well wishes for us.
Maybe ' bad' things happen
not exactly to replace the great.
But to bring us closer
to The Great
