One Thousand and One Nights

“Each pleasure that does not forward the soul to God is not so much a pleasure as a calamity.”
– One Thousand And One Nights

Yesterday we may have been beggars.
Today we are kings.
Tomorrow we may emerge as thieves.
Who knows what life will
bring?
Lest we leave it up to fate
To decide.

What we reap tomorrow
Has been determined by yesterday.
Can we know what fate has designed
For us
Unless we stay still?

Let my heart beat in Your
Rhythm,
O, my Beloved.
I miss You every day.
Longingly I race
Towards Your embrace.

Only You know the answer
That I am seeking.
Let love enter my heart.
For without it
I am a selfish fool.

Vanessa
