From Sumaiyah Mohamed

The Letter

At holy spaces like where my baby girl sleeps or beside my grandmother in her last breaths or watering my luscious green money plant I sing my heart full with selawat my head bowed perhaps my heart is in ruku’ O Rasulullah, how Great must be the Lord who created you Bless every single soul who has taught me about you who has shared with me your beautiful stories moved mountains within me healed the holes I never knew I had and moved my limbs to do good I never knew I could I want to die in adoration in wonder in love in hopes of you ya Rasulullah welcoming me when my eyes awake and I will never be deaf, dumb and blind again Talking about you shifts my lips into a prayer Can I be with you forever?
