Plight of the Homely Brother

 

I want you too much to take you

And cherish you too much to cheapen

So sister accept my distance

And watch my love deepen

 

I am but one man among many

Who longingly thinks to savor

Your warmth, your eyes, your smile,

And wonder at its flavor

 

My place among them is common

Of merits, I cannot boast

But sister my devotion

To your honor is foremost

 

And I alone among them

Nearly burst with wrath

When he of lusting eyes

Stood and blocked your path

 

When he of thieving hands

Stole a caress from yours

When he stood close to you

As he would with common whores

 

As I stood in my rage

You stood in virgin shame

I'd come to your defense

If you'd only call my name

 

If only you would see me

As more than just a beard

If only you could think of me

As more than religiously weird

 

It's for Islam, not spite it

That I will not meet your eye

And it's not romantic cowardice

That keeps my smiles shy

 

It's not because I fear you

That I will not call your name

And when I call you sister

I'm trying to be tame

 

It's not that you're inferior

It's just that I'm so base

I haven't the control

To gaze into your face

 

Without my heart missing beats

Without forgetting to be `brother'

Without wishing your love

Was for me, and no other

 

So until Allah, He blesses me

And you become my other half

I will always close my ears

To the melody of your laugh

 

I will always close my eyes

To the beauty of your face.

I will kindly ask my heart

To beat at normal pace.

 

I will walk a step before you

And cast no looks from behind

I will move my lips in dhikr

To keep yours off my mind.

 

For I want you too much to take you

And cherish you too much to cheapen

Sister, accept my distance.

Sister, watch my love deepen.

Easy zan da man ... different topic threads could be useful when discussing that particular poem.

 

I recommend one thread if the person writes them his/herself.

 

Good stuff Muslim Pride.
