In Search Of A Lover

For years and years, I tried to find,

a lover who would love me back.

A burning fire of love was there;

flames of passion burned in there.

Although the heart in real is rather small,

but the love it can hold is limitless after all.

 

Different persons came and went,

and I loved them to my heart’s content.

But heartache it is they kept giving;

and the fire in there was slowly quenching.

As sad as it was,

the lover in me had been lost.

 

All those years it kept me haunted,

why the love of a lover is unwanted.

Until one day something happened and something clicked,

I found the answer to the trick.

 

As apparent as it was, the problem was not with the lover I loved,

it was rather the kind of lover I sought.

For the one I was looking for,

was the one without a flaw.

For the one I was looking for,

was the one that gave as I hoped.

For the one I was looking for,

was the one that cared for the tears I shed.

For the one I was looking for,

was someone who never broke the heart.

 

Then a thought suddenly dawned on

that the lover I sought did not walk the Earth after all.

On a big throne in the sky He lives,

from where He rules everything that thrives.

The only One in the world is He

who doesn’t break the heart for the Maker is He.

For He is Al Wadoodu, The Most Loving,

And Ar-Rahman, The Most Compassionate.

 

The thought ignited the flames again

and I took out the mat and started to pray.

For I have finally found the lover I have sought,

for all that time I have cried and sobbed.
