POEM: Love Letter From Wife To Husband

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

Love letter, for Allah's sake, from me to my husband,
Who if he may not read this then perhaps in Heaven:
Dear spouse, I'll always love you despite the long distance.
When far, you roam in my thoughts and imaginations.

As my other half, I can't think of separation,
Because I promised to love you since our engagement.
From Allah I long to be your treasure and blessing,
For your struggles, for striving, and for being Muslim.

In your absence, you teach me about independence,
Loyalty, faithfulness and most beautiful patience.
When present, you gift me with all sorts of emotions,
From being observant of romance and contentment.

To some, you may be the wrong one - to me, you're handsome,
You're just perfect for me the way you are each season.
While I may like others, our love is an exception,
It's a journey of attractions with myriad lessons.

Through loving you I learned to be loyal, forgiving,
Patient, closer to God Allah and more determined.
Since our connection, I won't think of separation -
Always I'll love you until Allah brings you to Him.

May Allah Almighty make us among His righteous friends whom He will welcome in Jannatul Firdaus near Him and His beloved Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam. Ameen. (old youtube channel)
