Between my shadow and my soul

My Hafidh (Protection)

Peter Pan never forgets Never-Never land
Harry Potter can't unfeel his scar
So I am forever Yours
You made me Chosen, and let me think
I Chose. You gave me devotion when I
foolishly imagined I was Devoted
As if i was in control, as if I had the power
to oscillate my childhood on your nurturing axis
to feel the beauty of pre-dawn purpose
and the virtue of something Greater than myself.
There were times when i shied away from this Gift
And had uncapitalised i's and frivolous you's
No more. From today
I Sing You to Me

And that's your room, your hifdh is your room, it's what you cosset.

Beautifully enunciated, mash'Allah.
