A New Song (From The Song of Solomon)

a poem by Miryam Sakeena Nahar

I stood at the window, crying
But no one came
I never saw you rushing

I stood at the window, waiting
The birds will come at least
I never saw you rushing
Promising me a feast

I stood at the window, alone
The birds never came
No one ever came
I never saw you standing, gazing

I stood at the window, alone
Every day, all alone
I never saw you peering
I never heard you saying ”Arise My love
My beautiful one, and come with me.”

I stood at the window, cold
But now, I see you rushing, You, Jesus, so bold
Now I see you peering, Now you are mine and I am yours
The winter is past
And the rains are over and gone

Dance with me, my Love, my Life
Dance with me
The Song of Life
The Song of Love
In the dawn of each and every moment.
