The Heart is greater than the eyes,

for the heart, amidst all the pain,

sees through the delicate lenses of beauty.



The Heart is superior over the ears,

for the heart, amid all the loud noise,

listens to the softest whispers of humanity.



The Heart is bigger than the nose,

for the heart, among all of the scents,

smells the fragrance of new life.



The Heart is larger than the hands,

for the heart, amongst all that it can do,

touches in a way that is softer than the dawn’s dew.



The Heart is superior to the tongue,

for the heart, with all of its might,

speaks only the sweet letters of kindness.



The Heart is more immense than all of the human senses,

for the heart carries so much love,

it can lighten up the face of the whole universe.

Go back to sleep!

If you can't hear nature's song playing the music of love every new day, with every new dawn, new sunrise and a fresh moon smile,
Go back to sleep!

If you can't make your heart a Mecca for the freedom seekers, your spirit a temple for the suffering souls and your mind a spring well of innovative ideas,
Go back to sleep!

If you can't hear the cry of the iconic figure of the starving Yemeni child 'Amal Hussein', as she was shedding her last tear, taking her last breath, and whispering her last prayer,
Go back to sleep!

If you can't spare a holy dish to fill the empty stomachs, if you
can't spare a kind word to help sooth other’s pain and color their lives with the rainbow hues of hope and happiness,
Go back to sleep!

If you can't be the soul of your place, the tsunami of positive change and a part of the spring of humanity that will blossom
with a new future full of hope, love and inspiration,
Go back to sleep!

You experience love,
when you treat everything that you do in life, from
carefully drafting your thoughts and sketching your
rainbow dreams, to breathing and carrying out kind
deeds, as the sweet prayers you whisper to a beloved.

You feel love,
when all of the letters, all of the words
become muted with hollow meaning and strange characters,
it is when your five senses become speechless
in the presence of the thousand tongues of your heart.

You become one with love,
when you run your business with your beloved prepared for loss,
you let the scars of love dance inside your chest,
protect the perfect pieces of your heart that are left,
guard them with hope and wash them with your tears.

To be a shining star,
is to be the 'echo of love' that caresses
a weeping heart with two hugs and one smile.

To be a shining star,
is to dress your soul in the eternal
garment of kindness and render service to others.

To be a shining star,
is to have every fiber of your being glow with so much
humanity, lighting up the darkness of the entire universe.

Everyone has a story,
An accomplished dream,
A shattered dream,
And a dream in the works.

Everyone has a story,
A battle won,
A battle lost,
A battle that is unfolding.

Everyone has a story,
An old wound,
A bleeding wound,
And a scar that is healing.

Everyone has a story,
Life indulges you with its joys,
Coddles  you with security it
Stretch  you thin with its sorrows,

Everyone has a story, yet it is up to
you to ascend to victory, in your
fight against your agonies so, you can write  the last chapter of your story.

A breathtaking creation,
So close in distance,
Yet so far away,
Millions of light years away,
Physically untouchable,
Yet fully embraceable with your heart.

Let me be,
the makeup on your skin,
The fragrance of your perfume

Let me be,
the breeze that grazes your face,
and the unspoken letters on your lips.

Let me be,
your hidden secrets,
and your full moon.

Let me be,
your smile, your laughter, your tears,
your wishes, and your happy dreams.
