The Art of Waiting

nourish my art,
i will nourish your books

nurture my heart,
i will nurture yours

kiss my forehead,
i will surely plant a kiss between your gaze
soft, sweet, passionate,
supportive, and simultaneously deep and light.

i love you. i dare not explain in words.

i will give first.
i will meet you earlier
i will shatter my walls for you
i will melt into you
i will be our rock
because i can.

i wish you could see how much i would fight for you.

i’m being too forceful, though.

so,

i will nourish my art
i will nurture my heart
i will plant my forehead upon the soil,
first.

i pray for your sustenance & success to see His Face
in turn for Him to bless mine and yours.

وَأَلَّفَ بَينَ قُلوبِهِم ۚ لَو أَنفَقتَ ما فِي الأَرضِ جَميعًا ما أَلَّفتَ بَينَ قُلوبِهِم وَلٰكِنَّ اللَّهَ أَلَّفَ بَينَهُم ۚ إِنَّهُ عَزيزٌ حَكيمٌ
and united their hearts. Had you spent all that is in the earth, you could not have united their hearts, but Allah united them together. Indeed He is all-mighty, all-wise. (8:63)
