Please Forgive Me
Sister I tried .. I apologize ..
I swear by Your Mother Fatimah’s broken rib ..
I am afraid I neglected You in what I did..
Can You find it in Your patient heart to Forgive Me?!
Please forgive me, I may not return with Your quenching demand..
Zainab forgive me..
Amid the tents .. What do I hear?! ..
Thirsty cries of orphans O’ so loud and clear..
Be patient My dears..
Your Uncle is here..
I will be back with water..
Please, have no fear..
I promised Abdullah, Sukaina and Rukaya,
To quench their thirst
But they wanted something first..
I gave up My hands for water.. What more can be worst?!
Zainab You know me, it was hard to reach You
How could I deliver the water when an arrow sat in My eye?
I tried removing it but then I remembered I was left with no hands..
I tried shaking it off with my head .. then there I felt a sudden pain
I had no choice but to fall on My face and request
help and cry out Ya Hussain…
Zainab, this is my apology..
Please, Forgive Me..
