The JourneyBy Sami Khalil


Life, death, eternity…


Nothing stands still.

None live in vain.

The humble flame

is ever burning.

The subtle light

is incessantly shinning.

In ageless souls,

purpose and meaning.

Behold the journey;

Just a moment in time,

A predestined meeting.

Behold the dream,

Just a passing sail,

In slumber shades.

But life persists,

Through the constancy,

Through aging faces

Of seasons’ clime.

Though hearts

long to be immortal,

Every waking moment,

A precious gift,

An ambient miracle,

Leaving rippling traces,

Wave after wave,

Melody after melody,

Till our final rest

In heaven’s peace and joys

From endless sailing!

'.. But life persists, ~ Through the constancy, ~ Through aging faces ~ Of seasons’ clime. ~ Though hearts ~ long to be immortal, .. '

Sami, your ability to write subtle meter and also add full flavour to your written thoughts is always impressive. Time - and the adventures it holds, is the greatest teacher - if one allows it. We should learn by experience as says the quote (loosely recalled) ; I am all the people i've met, disliked and loved; all the places i've wanted to leave or tarried in; all the emotions felt, recalled, scarred by,, ,, Those words or the core of them have taken me rhrough a few years.. and God willing, a few more to come. Seems you feel similar and glory the chance of thinking yet more!

(just edited my thousands of typos, so sorry)

Wow! Thank you so much sir Andrew for this great wisdom and visit. Much obliged.
This is a beautiful poem that expresses something I've thought about lately becuz of youthful writing on this website that shows me young people are trying to sort out these very things. In the young person's view, it's often up-close with specific details, whereas your view is more at the mile-high perspective. It's a good message to balance out the seeking I've noticed in some writings here. It's a reassuring message much needed in our current times of strife & tragedy. I like the way you are more subtle in how you express these ideas (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
