I could not stop myself from noticing,
An elegant figure resembling a human,
Standing on a dock all alone focussing,
Onto a hostile place not fit for a man.
As ripples disturb the glows of the sea,
Neon illuminates the waves of his hair,
As I walk into flowers I stop at this tree,
Until the man turns and meets my stare.
Although this night awaits a full moon,
The gentleman invites me with a smile,
She sat with us then she left, so soon?!
I can recall us walking down the aisle.
“Farewell, old elegant figure of a man,
Farewell to take my sacred vows to her,
Farewell and hold on tight to Al-Qur’an,
Farewell only to return clearing the blur”.
