To A Baby Girl From Her Aunt

To A Baby Girl From Her Aunt short poem

Photo by harbortrees

Dedicated to my niece Noura

Sleep my darling
Have sweet dreams
Sweet little baby girl
The most precious pearl

Wrapped with my love
Wrapped with care
I pray your life
Is joyful and fair

I long to see you
Climbing a tree
I long to see you
Running so free

Are you the dearest,
To my heart I ask?
Your birth is a gift
To my soul and thrift

Is Noura your name?
Can I only place you within its frame?
You are far more than that my love
Just have no limits, you have so much to give

I am a Lebanese female poet, researcher and writer in Arabic and English.Fourth of January, 1957 I was born in Quarnayel, Lebanon. Being an only daughter among three sons, gave my whole life an aromatic taste. I got a master degree in political science from the American University of Beirut. Mahatma Gandhi is the only politician I follow and respect. Gamal Abd Nasir is the only Arab leader I admire. Rabindranath Tagore is my spiritual master. His poetry, writings, music, and universal thought is a real fountain for my spiritual uplifting. Chief Seattle’s “Message To the Modern World” broadened my views and deepened my interrelationships with Mother Nature and the GREAT SPIRIT. John Lennon is my daily friend. I recognize his song “Imagine” as my national anthem. I am a fan of Yoko Ono; I appreciate what she gave to the “whole world” through her love to John. I believe that the cosmic law is the only law that any creature must follow in order to understand the simple truth of life and death: that is another form of existence.

All braced to face the day, The diurnal engine ignited, Gently revving up, Barging into the quietude Of the colony, With a daily prayer escaping His mumbling lips, As he steered mildly Into the road, To see a car pulled
