The Holly Land; Heaven


I have always felt that a short yet successful life filled with achievements is in fact a perfect life. Whenever, people come to mention a famous person who was very successful yet died young, they come to talk about that regretfully, yet I’ve never seen it that way. I think it is as if all the moments of failure & depression were compressed to take a very limited space of your lifetime & most of your lifetime was spent in achieving successes. We could take the lives of some artists & authors as a good example of a life intensely & successfully, yet shortly, lived. I have no pessimistic or suicidal tendencies –thank God- but I have never regarded dying young after a successful life a bad thing.!!!!
The Holly Land; Heaven

I came to take your hand
Come see the holy land
Gardens, Gardens, Gardens
No heat, on thirst, no sand

I came crossing time
Not to kill your prime
But to show you how..
To die & yet be fine

The holy land known as Heaven
To you, young lady, God has given
Dying young is not a curse
Dying young.. to live in Heaven

الحديقة و الأيام



الحديقة و الأيام

و تركتني الأيام
و رَحَلَتَ مع الأيام
و ظللت وحدي بلا أيام
تركتني أيام الماضي.. و مضت
و تركتني أيام الحاضر.. و ذابت
و تركتني أيام المستقبل
و سافرت إلى المستقبل
كل الأيام تركتني
و أنا الآن أجد نفسي
وحيدة.. في حديقة
فيها زهور و أشجار و ألوان
لكن ليست فيها أيام
و أنا في وسط الحديقة الكبيرة.. صغيرة
و ليس معي أيام
ماذا أفعل بحديقة غابت عنها الأيام؟
و في غياب الأيام.. كل الأيام
الماضي و الحاضر و الأحلام
تتوقف الأرض عن الدوران
