I open to the Rose, And find myself, Deep within perfumed folds of pink, Drunk with beauty! I open to the song of the bird, To hear the music of my soul, Singing free! I open to the sky, And find myself floating, Soft and loving as a cloud! I open to beauty and I open to myself, I embrace beauty and know it as myself, I let it in, And let it shine. -Anita Bacha-
God only knows, I saw your smile in the crescent of the moon, I saw your tears sashaying the window screen, Or was it raining on a full moon night, God only knows, I am madly in love with the idea of you, The scent of henna on my beloved’s hand, Breathes the perfume of rose in the desert sand, God only knows, How far the traveler has run around the globe, I saw your footprints in a puddle of water, I saw your fingers running in my tangled hair, Or was it the rustling of the mimosa leaves God only knows.

One year has left, Another has stepped in; It all happened so suddenly, In a blink of the eye; Did I love you enough, my dear friend? Did I say it often enough? Time waits for none, But love stands the test of time; God has blessed me with this life And,with you as my friend; Trust in my love and friendship, You are God’s gift to me, You live in my heart, I love you ❤️ I wish you plenty of everything that you desire in 2020 Happy New Year, my dear friend!
