Reunion

As I depart in this curious state
In search of light of perfect faith
Uneasy is this last embrace
In grief I kiss thy tearful face

What praise is such a one to speak
Who knows to sing but not to seek
Would that thou could clearly see
The station of such a one as thee

The moments spent away from me
A watcher stood and prayed for thee
And even as thy hands did rise
Flew open doors of paradise

As thy forehead touched the ground
Musk flowed to form a fragrant mound
For thou to saunter with merry wade
While far from thee the Scrolls were laid

And last I heard thy tears did form
A pool replenished by waterfalls
Thy pleas in the dead of night became
The strolling maiden's serenade

In heaven there were barren plains
The gardens grew from thy morning praise
Thy recitation reached further still
It echoed off the Eden Hills

Thy words of sweet admonishment
Are palace ceiling ornaments
The call thou did with longing hear
Adorns its princely chandeliers

And as thy toil doth come to cease
Thou doth retire amidst a breeze
Of amber drops and scented dew
And saffron leaves of tranquil hue

So if at last thou did acquire
The vision of the Sinai fire
Thou shalt then hear the orchestra
For Ali's verse to Fatima

There is no bond between two hearts
The law of life shan't break apart
Reunion is in the purest place
For those who make this last embrace
