The Book of Naki

The Book of Naki by hineni for zakiah ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Chapter 1 Let me write my words in these books, So that when they are read by future generations, The love we have can be known forever. Chapter 2 In spite of this pain, I would gladly love you again, As if we had never met. Chapter 3 Don't forget me, my dove, For when these troubles consume us, We will forget, as we should. Chapter 4 I had only seen a glimpse of you, Through distant windows of time, And through eternal waters. Chapter 5 You are all that I need, And with this, I can rest. But the world may not agree, Yet I will be at rest. You make it difficult to forget, And in this, I can rest. Yet when I remember who you are, I will be free in this rest. Please, don't ever leave me, For when you go, I am in rest. Yet, even when I see you streaming down the pastures, I leave in my rest. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Amen.
