When I saw you
I think my heart split in two
I have never felt my heart so alive
My heartbeat went into overdrive
And my mind stopped working
I didn’t know what was happening
I wanted to say something
But you weren’t looking
I don’t know why I feel this way when I see you
But I know my feelings for you are true
I hope we can be together one day
Until then, all I can do is just pray
I see you almost every week after my last class
I walk down the stairs to the train platform and I see you there
Some look at you like there should be a safety glass
Others just walk by with out a single care
Many walk by and hope that the next person will help you
Then they take you out of their mind
Others walk past with that thought too
Why are we all so blind?
What is happening to us?
Can we not help a man in need?
This a topic people won’t discuss
And this world is filled with greed
We can say we have no money to give
But didn’t you just spend money on shoes you don’t need?
Is this how you want to live
But are you living if you don’t have a care to give?
I saw you walking towards me
And I got mesmerized by your presence
I started getting thoughts about what we could be
You have an aurora of the heavens
How can you be real?
To my delight, we both were here on the same earth
Maybe we can help each other heal
And our happiness could have a rebirth
Because you looked worn down
And my emotions have been gone
I would love to see you walking in a wedding gown
I want to pray to Allah together before dawn
I want to ask if we could be together in heaven
But for now I will be asking if we can be together in a loving haven
