Let Me Dwell With You

Let me dwell

with you;

my law was written

my attributes

are known.

My fate set

I shall transcend

for I have known

your love.

The desolation of my youth

I shall pass

for I love your name,

more then mine.

– Michaela Sefler

    A great poem, ma sha Allah. I’ll certainly check out her site, insha Allah.

    I like ‘the desolation of my youth’ line particularly

    I would not wish to go back to the desolation of my youth… way too confusing a time.
