heavenly peace

 

Lil' Z (nearly 4 months)

she sleeps in heavenly peace

she has a peace from heaven

she is a piece of heaven

not an angel, but angelic

so pure, you can smell it

so true, you can tell it

she dreams of sweet things that broaden her cheeks

expand her breast

giving tranquil rest

she wakes as the dawn breaks with the brightest of smiles

widest of eyes

glimmering with hope

in spite of the times

while the afflicted mourn

and hearts are torn

she reminds me that the sun still shines

babies are still born

smiles are still worn

we know the days will get harder

calamities will descend

but those who hold to this mercy

need not fear the end

the days will get shorter

for themselves all will fend

but those who follow this guidance

need not fear the end

the womb will continue quaking

cleaving wounds we cannot mend

but those who hold to this good

need not fear the end

devastation will continue

hardship will be widespread

but those who worship none other than the One

need not fear the end

when the lies appear true

and what’s right is hard to defend

those who give victory to truth

need not fear the end

when the dogma fades

religion no longer a trend

those who are sincere in their seeking

need not fear the end

every verse of the Qur’an

like a sincere letter to a friend

unveiling the path

to success in the end

so take this piece of heaven

take this peace from heaven

and sleep in heavenly peace
