A Letter of Love
With pen in hand, under the moonlight I etch down a letter of love, I erase and re-write
How do I put into words how you cured my strife?
Rescuing me the untamed seas of this ending life
You changed my life in more ways than you’ll ever know
I remember that day how you set my faith in love aglow
A sister’s advice and a mother’s guidance
You awakened in me, an un-silencing conscious
You made me a stranger to others, but as we grew I cared less
My love for you and what it stood for I would never suppress
Pen down, I see you from where I sit
The moonlight shining on you, as if internally lit
And yet you will never read this letter, for the words of love you cannot say
But I know that Allah loves me because He allowed me to don you each and every day
You are but four corners of fabric that I so desperately love
You are who I am, a command sent from above
I call you Hijab, but oh you are so much more
You are my protection, my light, my dignity and to Jannah my door.
