Al-Khidr

ayaalhakim:

Bring the medicine man,
the holy man, my lover
of this world and the next
to split my body back
into what it was-
a raging river named mercy
that fulfils wishes in the dark.

Bring the fool,
the dreamer, my lover
of this world and the next
to catch a fish from the river
and find the hidden pearl inside.
Mercy is given and taken like this.
Call it the gift of love.

~Aya Al-Hakim©
