Mother, Your Diamond Heart

By Loay Taha Hussein
Translated by Lina Hamadeh

Whispers and knocks
At my spirit’s door
Awakened my sleep
Dressed in my longing gown
And from its yearning window
I looked and found you,
You my mother
Placing your fingers
On my feelings’ latch
Carrying my favorite roses
Wearing your elegant smile
And your grief hanging as pendant
On your diamond heart
By God, mother, how beautiful was meeting you
How it cures my loneliness
And consoles my feelings

All my longing to you, “Samar”
