Such Things These Eyes They Wish To See






                                                           "Madinah Sunset" by Qalb Par Nazar



i wish upon embers
falling from my eyes
not tears
but starshine
blazing and glorious
like the sunset over Makkah


i wish i can take flight
like Iqbal's eagle
soaring and endless
searching for its place
insane
yet, oh 

so divine

and i wish that my gaze
may one day fall
upon the both of you
smiling 

at me

as Muhammad must have smiled
at Khadija
a love so rare 


not quite romantic
unconditional 


as the love i have for you
simultaneous 


like blood brothers 

mine

eternal.


- Susan Marie 2013 


[last poem of the year, for my two brothers]
