Looking Beautiful
Let your face shine with your smile behind your COVID 19 mask.
Swathe your lips by kind words.
Look at others with the eye of your heart.
Dress yourself with a garment of content.
Diffuse your community with the fragrance of compassion.
Bake your heart with tenderness.
Burn your soul with love.
Wear the crown of humanity.
Stand tall as a model for rendering services to others.

What is your worth?

The smiles on friendly faces?
The gratitude from an individual's lips?
The Mecca of someone inspirations?
The crown of human hearts?

My Dear Rose
Hussein Dekmak Oct 2020
Gazing at you this morning, your face was pale and your body appeared Fragile;
This brought tears to my heart!

Not long ago, you were full of energy, looking vibrant with life, so Beautiful!
Your smile was soft, your scent delightful.

Without you,
Life won't be the same;
Fall will be long, winters will be cold and empty!
You are my beacon of peace, love, and inspiration!

I will miss you,
Yet, I will be waiting for you,
At the corner of love and hope to see you bloom once again with such life.
Enchanting me with the joy and beauty you bring.
The chance to admire you will be absolute bliss!

The music that I love
Hussein Dekmak Oct 2020
My favorite music is the music that,I hear going off at the Hospital, when a COVID 19 patient is off the ventilator.

This music is
A Song of a new dawn,
A Journey to the future,
A melody of new life,
A Symphony of hope, and
The rebirth of the universe.

Water reflects the image of its surrounding,
Sky reflects the color of a blue ocean,
Clouds illuminate rays from the sun,
Mirrors reflect the beauty of the face!

Your words convey your thoughts,
Your kindness mirrors your heart,
Your actions display your character,
Your eyes reveal your inner soul!

Make every fiber of your being
Parallel the depth of the ocean,
The scent of flowers, the taste of spring,
Touch of the breeze and the welcoming of a new dawn!

A soft heart, and humane person.

A whisper of love

What makes the sun so magnificent?
What drives the moon to look so gorgeous?
What compels the stars to twinkle in the night sky?
What leads the flowers to smell so delightful?
What causes the butterflies to flutter so elegantly?
What inspires the birds to sing so joyfully?
What makes the ocean waves dance so gracefully?
What aspires Mother Nature to be so captivating?
What prepares a person to be so enchanting?
'It is a whisper of love'

A black man struggling to breathe,
A Yemeni child searching for a safe place,
A Palestinian man struggling to be free,
An African villager dreaming of clean drinking water!

A lonely man longing for company,
A homeless person dreaming of shelter,
A hungry child craving a home cooked meal,
An orphan yearning for a mother’s touch!

A disabled person dreaming about walking,
An elderly man wishing to visit his loved ones,
A sick patient praying to be free from the pain,
A COVID 19 patient wanting to get off the ventilator!

Sending love and a prayer to those who have such beautiful dreams.

Your face was cold, covered with a mask,
Yet your eyes were so warm and welcoming,
Sending me a thousand heartfelt greetings!

So close I could feel it!

Your hands were hidden under gloves,
Yet your soul was radiating on me with such warmth!

From the womb of Coronavirus,
Comes the birth of a new human being With a noble cause, a new purpose, a renewed vision, and a new mentality, one that would

Listen to people's cries, and lift their spirits,
Sheds tears over the innocent lives claimed by the illness,

Values close family ties, friendship, and Recites a wishful prayer to
Alleviate the suffering of the distressed Souls,

Protects the elderly, takes care of their Neighbor , spares meals to feed The Hungry, and renders services to others and Expect  nothing in return,

A birth of a new human being,
Who thinks, breathes, speaks and acts with Kindness ,
Who’s molded from humility,
With a mind full of reflection, and a
Soft heart encompassed with love.

It is All Good!
Hussein Dekmak Nov 2019
If you go through a raging storm,
Have your life colored with sorrow,
And taste the wine of pain.
It is all good!

If you go through a bad experience,
Have your heart broken to pieces,
And your rosy dreams shattered.
It is all good!

If you go through a venture of failure,
Suffer through a dreadful  hardship,
And struggle to make ends meet.
It is all good!

After all, “What doesn't break you makes you stronger.”
Sorrow, tears, and pain will shape
Your personality and make it shine
With beauty, love, and humanity!

You are all of the beautiful melodies of the birds.
You are the charming smiles on the faces of people,
Painted with a rainbow of inspiration and optimism!

You are the  twinkling stars.
You are the new dawn wrapped,
with renewed promise, the sunshine!

Your soft words are a sweet song that touches hearts.
Makes faces glow with smile,
And fill minds with hope and inspiration!

To My Dad’s Olive Tree:
Hussein Dekmak Jul 2019
I hope you know, I cherish our fond memories together, preserving them in my heart.
All that I shared with you about my childhood dreams, my first love,
The songs I serenaded you with melodies celebrating nature,
Our endless nights together admiring the stars dancing around the full moon!

I remember how tall you stood. You were so strong,
Like Lebanon’s mountains, amidst our land’s ancient ruins.
Facing the Israeli occupation, you stood with so much pride.
I remember how we rejoiced with family and neighbors during the sweet liberation!

My Dad planted you with his hands, he nurtured you with his love and sweat.
He was so strong and now times have changed him:
He’s grown older, thinner, more fragile, his speech is slurred.
The eyes that once held thousands of untold stories are now dim!

You are part of God’s oath, Noah’s mission with the Ark.
You are a sacred plant, a symbol of love, life, peace, friendship,
And generations of culture passed down.
Your roots run so deep in my Dad’s hearts and minds.

I implore you old friend, lighten up my Dad’s golden age with your kind heart,
Lend him support in taking more steps towards life,
Keep his spirit alive so he can continue singing the song of a new life, and
Give him the strength to swing on the porch, to admire you again for each new day and pristine sunrise.

Celebrate nature’s beauty by caring for it as you would a loved one.
Celebrate your life by giving unconditional love to all of humanity,
And looking forward to the future while being fully present in the moment.
