Brave It…                      Sami Khalil



I braved wars, rains and high seas


The Western and Eastern fronts


Language barriers


The veils that cloud many moons


The heart quivers,


Awakening at night


The speed of sound,


The light of reason


Questions and exclamation marks


Responses and rejections


The casual, the formal


The radiance of your star


The endless search


Between…


Cradles and graves


I braved


loving you!

If I may make so bold, there is a maturity evident in your writing. If that doesn't sound too holier than thou.

Not at all. Thank you so much Ken for all your inspiration and encouragement. Truly appreciated.
it does take courage eh!? and only each of us can answer how ell worth it it is/was ;)
I say keep going for it!! love shared is all we really have after all .. the middle of your poem started me thinking of PTSD ... and how that can awaken the bravest heart with terrors ... God blesses us with one to hold tight to says i!

Thank you so much Einstein for the time and visit.
This made me smile ... loving her as courageous as braving wars, rains and high seas? Or was the 'radiance of your star', something more spiritual?
Anyway your poem, simpler than your usual ones, I thought, was very beautiful.

Thank you so much for the lovely visit and response.
This love letter is not sweet, not saccharine - but passionate and declares the writer's willingness to persevere through it all for the object of this devotion. Well said.

I'm honored by your visit and thankful.
dear Sami... to Brave the radiance of another's star is dazzling, but worth the quest. The endless search between cradle and grave. I love the words, "And when I grow too old to dream, I'll have you to remember!". It is very Brave to love.... it takes every virtue and more to love purely. It is a great lesson in giving...
Your poetry shows the depth of your enduring wars, rains and high seas, as well as the veils that cloud many moons. "The heart quivers...
the light of reason". So much said with few words. Truly a gem. Pat

Even your responses are poetic and beautiful. Grace be upon you.
Love has no eyes and brain but has heart, brain reasons everything, weigh everything, compare everything and then may or may not make a move, heart in the contrary just follow which is bravery but to materialistic world they may call what a moron!, poem succeeded in projecting the idea when some one truly loves another no universe, humans, language, differences in opinion or anything in his way does not matter as he or she brave enough to love truly, well done.

You put things in great perspective. Thank you for all you say and do, Linda.
And yes Bravery comes into play when a heart is exposed. The vulnerability shared with one whom you thought you could trust or Hey, you may trust still. But being Brave.... In Love you must be or else you would never experience that depth of emotion. Well done a fabulous piece, dear Poet.
