My Josh Groban Addiction

These days more than ever, I'm listening to Josh Groban intensively, more than I have ever listened to any artist!

I realized I have to explain why I am becoming more and more addicted to his music everyday and it's certainly not because I'm a teenager and that I dream of him or stuff like that :D

Simply, me being Josh Groban's fan means that I totally respect this guy, and adore his music, because I feel he is changing the world with his art, because he is a unique and a REAL artist that carved the history of music; creating music that is not just different, but also classy, modern and supreme...

My first experience with Josh Groban was a few years ago when I saw him on the Oprah show singing "When you say you love me" and I was fascinated by him! So I got his album "Closer"... At that time, I used to listen to the album's songs non-stop all the time (and I still do till now, I never got bored!).

Josh's music inspires me. If I spend an hour or more listening to him, I find myself writing and writing. His voice is so magical to me, his music is heavenly and his performance is so sensational, full of feelings and indescribable!

I don't just love listening to Josh, but I also love watching him perform. He dresses so elegantly and he doesn't even move a bit with the music because his voice, facial expressions and hands show it all! He is such a unique artist; my dream is to one day attend one of his live concerts.

As a music fan in general, and as a poet in specific, Josh's music means a lot to me... It means "real art" and "inspiration". His type of music is not favored by everyone, because not everyone can truly taste it and realize it's so sweet!

Josh's music is a mix of opera, pop, slow, ..whatever genre.. I don't really care.. His genre is the JOSH genre; he has his own style and his own magic.

I love Josh Groban's music, I love the way he inspires me, I love his Italian, Spanish and even French songs.. I consider myself a true fan of his because I see his music in a way that I believe few people do...

Josh Groban is simply a phenom. I wish I can tell him this face-to-face one day, and tell him how many of my poems were inspired by his one-of-a-kind music. I wish he'd sing one of my poems one day...

I had troubles choosing my favorite Josh's song to post here, because I truly love them all, but I'll post this ad of his latest albums, because it contains powerful bits of many of his songs that show his real style of singing, and great footage as well!

and here's this one too "You're still you".. because its lyrics mean a lot to me..

My Interview

At university, we have a blog for our department called CSES-DAYS.
This blog was created by colleagues in my class, mainly headed by Hatem El-Gmel.

On this blog, many of the students who are writers cooperate to post a lot of funny things about our experience as computer engineering students ...

Hatem had an idea to interview some people from our class and post the interviews on the blog.. I was lucky to be one of those chosen people!
I had a very nice interview that I liked a lot and enjoyed as well...

The interview was just posted today:

And I would like to have this opportunity to thank Hatem for his very nice work on the blog, as well as with this interview, because it gave me such pleasure to feel that I had an influence in my class and in the department as a whole...!

Thanks for the nice questions, the real amazing introduction about me, the hard editing work and everything!

God bless!

[Poem] "Good Night"

"Good Night"
Poem #192
Written 24.6.09

I can’t go to bed without you,
I can’t sleep before I tell you,
"Good night", my sweetest love…
In my mind you’ll be thought of,
In my heart I’ll safely lock you,
In my dreams, I’ll always host you.
My soul will hold you tight,
You guard me day and night;
You’re my angel, you protect me,
You understand the inner me,
You bless every moment with joy,
Stretching a future for me to enjoy,
Enlightening me with much hope,
Never allowing me to sadly mope,
Lifting me up to soar in the skies,
Wiping every tear from my eyes,
Cherishing me so preciously,
Defending me courageously…
You’re more than my dream man,
You’re where my life began,
You’re my miracle, my charm,
Always keeping me from harm.
Without you I will never be whole,
Without you I don’t even exist at all…

[Poem] I Don't Want to Write

I Don’t Want to Write
Poem # 191
Written 23.6.09

Being a writer has many advantages, one of which is to "never underestimate the power of pain, coz it produces great words"…
And that’s one of the reasons I appreciate pain, and that’s one of the reasons I wrote this poem… and the title of this poem is not really true, I still want to write :) Still, pain is hard..

I hate it when I’m feeling severe pain,
Even though I know that I’ll gain,
Even though I know it’ll make me write,
Even though it gives me power to fight.
But I’m tired of pain; I don’t want its gain…
If I have to suffer, rebel and hate,
If pain makes my writings so great,
I don’t want to write, I don’t want the tears,
I want to be free from all those fears…
I want to find my peace and serenity,
I am tired of searching for my identity,
I want to be who I really want to be,
From all these chains, I want to be free,
I want to taste the sweetness of love,
I want to be appreciated and thought of…
I hate being the victim of merely ‘fate’,
But all I can do now is to hopefully wait,
Maybe things will be better, one day,
Hopefully light will shine my dark way…

[Poem] Without You

Without You
Poem #190
Written 23.6.09

Without you, life is a deep dark sea,
In which I am blinded and can’t see,
In which I am stabbed with a knife,
I don’t even consider this a life…

I don’t want to live without you,
Life is full of lies, it’s so untrue,
It’s cruel and you’re the only one,
Who makes all this pain gone…

You can understand what I need,
You help me overcome and succeed,
I am a better person, because of you;
I can find my own way through…

I want to be with you forever,
And not to care about whatever;
Lying in your arms will give me peace,
It’s only where my suffering will cease…

[Poem] When the World Makes Me Blue

When the World Makes Me Blue
Poem #189

Written 19.6.09

When the world makes me blue,
I only want to run to you…
When everyone hurts me badly,
And my world looks at my madly,
I know you’ll know how I feel,
And give me love so that I heal…
I know you’ll totally surround me,
With tenderness, all around me;
You’ll tightly hold me until I’m fine,
You’ll listen and bear all my whine,
Assuring me that it’ll be okay,
That happiness will come my way.

You’re my sanity, shelter and cure,
The one who makes me feel secure,
The one who can alter anything;
Make a cold winter feel like spring,
Turn the cruelest stab into joy,
With the sweetness of a young boy,
Who looks happily at the sky,
Knowing that one day he’ll fly,
Carrying me on his love wings,
It’s when I’ll forget all the bad things…

The Lord shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul.

The Lord shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul.
Psalms 121:7

الرَّبُّ يَحْفَظُكَ مِنْ كُلِّ شَرٍّ. يَحْفَظُ نَفْسَكَ.
مزامير 121 : 7

The idea of being in an emergency and having the courage to act and do the right thing in a messy time is hard... And being put in such emergency situations gives us as human beings the courage and experience we need in this life.

I've faced some of these emergencies, including having to call a doctor once, and when I was a little girl I once thought there was a fire and I screamed...But now when there is an emergency, there is just one different thing, I am not a little girl anymore, which means I am supposed to act and do something.

Today we unfortunately had a bad incident in our block that I learnt a lot from, and that's why I am blogging now! A small fire
was caused in the elevator basement, And because we live in the second floor, we were the first people to notice the smell, and act.

I took the initiative to call the fire department, who I didn't even know their number! but before I did that.. I prayed.. I asked God to help us.. which is the number one thing I learnt...Because it was the only way the situation was going to be saved. If there is no protection from God, life would have been full of crisis.

The second thing I did after calling the fire people, was that I hurried down with two small bottles of water. Neighbours told me don't put any water there.. I wonder if they thought I was stupid enough to try to extinguish a fire using two small bottles of water of size 0.75 liters! The water was actually from Anba Antonious Monastery and St Abaskhairoun's church. I kept these two bottles for lots of months, and I drank from them once in a while, and the water smelt good till now, because it's miraculous water, I'm sure you all know the stories of this water.

So I hurried downstairs and gave the bottles to dad
, I told him to spray it in the elevator, he understood what I meant, and sprayed it. It didn't extinguish the fire, but the fire didn't spread to the elevator body nor any wires (which is what I consider a miracle coz wires were all over the bottom of the elevator, that was at the basement at that time). After few minutes, dad put out the fire, using our car's fire extinguisher (Which was the most scary thing about this issue for me was that he was the one acting).

After that, things became fine, regardless of the emotional and psychological shock everyone had.

Now, one of the very good things that happened was how the fire department acted. When I called them, they asked for my name and number and I shouted at the guy, "We have a fire and you're asking for my name and number, it's not the time for this!" but what they did was actually call the police, the ambulance, the electricity company, the governorate, and every other affiliation. The fire department came within 15 minutes (I think that's fast!) and some people even came to investigate. Every instituation I mentioned kept calling us to make sure we're fine and we didn't need anything. They were decent and so respectful. I actually didn't know before that these procedures happen when someone reports a fire but it made me really glad! I didn't thought the fire people will even come!

I once again, thank God , that my dad was home, as well as my uncle, and that many people were here too, and that things were arranged this way to make the situation fine.

I believe everything in life happens for a reason, and I thank God for everything in my life. This fire thing that has happened has showed me, like many times before, that God protects us, even if we don't know or feel this protection...
And that's why I chose that title for this post.

During emergencies, we should have courage and fast action, but most importantly,
our faith is the thing that protects us. Maybe people would think I'm a crazy person to spray saints' water in a fire hoping to extinguish it, but I have faith, and I have enough experience in life that showed me that we can do every possible thing in life, but when we don't ask for God, we won't succeed. Our God is able, He is mighty, and so merciful.

I thank God he gave me courage to put up with this hard situation, I haven't broken down during it, I haven't cried or screamed like when I was a little girl, and I had a clear mind to pray and act. The good side of these tough situations is that we actually see God, we see His hands work before ours, we strengthen our faith and love to Him..

Another issue this specific situation has shown me is that women, on contrary to what many may think, have strength and power and can think fast...Women are now head-to-head with men; they can be as influential and can act sometimes even better than a lot of men.

And now, I like reading one of my favourite psalms from the Holy Bible..
Psalm 91

مزمور 91

اَلسَّاكِنُ فِي سِتْرِ الْعَلِيِّ فِي ظِلِّ الْقَدِيرِ يَبِيتُ. 2 أَقُولُ لِلرَّبِّ: [مَلْجَإِي وَحِصْنِي. إِلَهِي فَأَتَّكِلُ عَلَيْهِ]. 3 لأَنَّهُ يُنَجِّيكَ مِنْ فَخِّ الصَّيَّادِ وَمِنَ الْوَبَإِ الْخَطِرِ. 4 بِخَوَافِيهِ يُظَلِّلُكَ وَتَحْتَ أَجْنِحَتِهِ تَحْتَمِي. تُرْسٌ وَمِجَنٌّ حَقُّهُ. 5 لاَ تَخْشَى مِنْ خَوْفِ اللَّيْلِ وَلاَ مِنْ سَهْمٍ يَطِيرُ فِي النَّهَارِ 6 وَلاَ مِنْ وَبَأٍ يَسْلُكُ فِي الدُّجَى وَلاَ مِنْ هَلاَكٍ يُفْسِدُ فِي الظَّهِيرَةِ. 7 يَسْقُطُ عَنْ جَانِبِكَ أَلْفٌ وَرَبَوَاتٌ عَنْ يَمِينِكَ. إِلَيْكَ لاَ يَقْرُبُ. 8 إِنَّمَا بِعَيْنَيْكَ تَنْظُرُ وَتَرَى مُجَازَاةَ الأَشْرَارِ. 9 لأَنَّكَ قُلْتَ: [أَنْتَ يَا رَبُّ مَلْجَإِي]. جَعَلْتَ الْعَلِيَّ مَسْكَنَكَ 10 لاَ يُلاَقِيكَ شَرٌّ وَلاَ تَدْنُو ضَرْبَةٌ مِنْ خَيْمَتِكَ. 11 لأَنَّهُ يُوصِي مَلاَئِكَتَهُ بِكَ لِكَيْ يَحْفَظُوكَ فِي كُلِّ طُرْقِكَ. 12 عَلَى الأَيْدِي يَحْمِلُونَكَ لِئَلاَّ تَصْدِمَ بِحَجَرٍ رِجْلَكَ. 13 عَلَى الأَسَدِ وَالصِّلِّ تَطَأُ. الشِّبْلَ وَالثُّعْبَانَ تَدُوسُ. 14 لأَنَّهُ تَعَلَّقَ بِي أُنَجِّيهِ. أُرَفِّعُهُ لأَنَّهُ عَرَفَ اسْمِي. 15 يَدْعُونِي فَأَسْتَجِيبُ لَهُ. مَعَهُ أَنَا فِي الضِّيقِ. أُنْقِذُهُ وَأُمَجِّدُهُ. 16 مِنْ طُولِ الأَيَّامِ أُشْبِعُهُ وَأُرِيهِ خَلاَصِي.

May God bless and protect you all...

[Poem] Everything Around Reminds Me of You

Everything Around Reminds Me of You
Poem # 186
Written 8.6.09

Everything around reminds me of you,
All the memories make me feel blue,
You’re not here anymore; I miss you,
It makes life hard to go through…

Your face surrounds me everywhere,
And I can feel your breeze in the air,
I miss your love, warmth and care,
It makes my heart ache and tear…

I can’t go on when you’re not here;
My life is full of despair and fear,
I wish that those words you hear,
Will one day bring you near, my dear…

Saint Evronia

Saint Evronia the Ascetic
(Also known as Febronia)

القديسة اڤرونية الناسكة
(او فبرونيا)

The 1st of Epip (July 8th) commemorates the martyrdom of the great Saint to who I owe my beautiful name: Saint Evronia...

All my life, my name was my favorite thing; to me, it was unique, lovely and had a beautiful meaning. Even though it has always been hard for people to pronounce it, but they can recall me easily since they always remember my name is different!

I am proud to be one of the eldest people alive who have that name, and even though the name is spreading now among younger girls, I still like the feeling that I'm a pioneer ! :)

Thanks to my mom, who spent two weeks searching for such a unique name when I was born, with all its meanings and spellings and the story of Saint Evronia as well.. And even though some people have different spellings for the name, Evronia and اڤرونية are the most correct ones since they are documented in the Synaxarium and on Internet Encyclopedias.

Every year on the 1st of Epip, I celebrate Saint Evronia's feast, as well as my baptism anniversary, since I was baptized on the same date... My parents did this so that I would always have nice memories about that day :) That's why I celebrate this day every year, as much as I celebrate my birthday, or even more!

Through the years, I've been asked tremendously about the meaning of my name and about the story of St Evronia, that is why I'm writing this post.

Evronia means: "the one with the right thought", or "wise" in Latin, and also means "pure" in old Dannish.

Here's the story of Saint Evronia from the Synaxarium, as posted on:

استشهاد القديسة افرونية الناسكة

في مثل هذا اليوم استشهدت القديسة الناسكة العذراء أفرونية . هذه القديسة كانت لها خالة تسمي أوريانة رئيسة علي دير كان موجودا بين النهرين فيه خمسون عذراء فربتها بخوف الله وعلمتها قراءة الكتب الإلهية . فنذرت نفسها للسيد المسيح وجاهدت الجهاد الحسن بالنسك والصوم يومين يومين والصلاة بغير انقطاع ولما أصدر دقلديانوس أمره بعبادة الأوثان واستشهد كثيرون من المسيحيين علي يديه سمعت العذارى بذلك فخفن وخرجن من الدير واختبأن . ولم يبق فيه إلا القديسة أفرونية وأخت أخري والرئيسة . ولما كان الغد أتي رسل الملك إلى الدير وقبضوا علي الرئيسة وأهانوها . فقالت لهم أفرونية "خذوني أنا واتركوا هذه العجوز" . فأخذوها هي أيضا مقيدة بالحبال إلى الوالي وكان عمرها في ذاك الوقت عشرين سنة وكانت جميلة المنظر وكانت الآم تتبعها فعرض عليها الوالي عبادة الأوثان ووعدها بوعود كثيرة فلم تقبل فأمر بضربها بالعصي ثم أمر بتمزيق ثوبها. فصرخت فيه الأم قائلة : " يشقك الرب أيها الوحش المفترس لأنك تقصد التشهير بهذه الصبية اليتيمة " فاغتاظ وأمر أن تعصر القديسة أفرونية بالمعصرة ويمشط جسدها بأمشاط من حديد إلى أن تهرأ لحمها فكانت تصلي إلى الرب طالبة منه المعونة ثم قطع لسانها وقلع أسنانها وكان الرب يقويها ويصبرها . ,أخيرا أمر بذبحها فنالت إكليل الشهادة فأخذ أحد الأتقياء جسدها ولفه بلفائف غالية ووضعه في صندوق مذهب صلاتها تكون معنا . آمين

The Martyrdom of Saint Febronia the Ascetic

On this day, St. Febronia, the ascetic virgin, was martyred. This saint was the niece of the superior of a convent that had fifty virgins, in a place called "Ouryana" in Mesopotamia. Her aunt brought her up in the fear of God and taught her the reading of the Holy Books. St. Febronia vowed herself to the Lord Christ, and she fought the good fight by asceticism, fasting for two days at a time, and unceasing in her prayers. When Emperor Diocletian issued his edict to worship idols, many Christians were martyred by his hands. When the virgins heard that, they were afraid and left the convent and went into hiding. None was left in the convent except St. Febronia, another sister and the abbess. On the following day, the envoys of the Emperor came, seized the abbess, and humiliated her. St. Febronia said to them, "Take me and set free this old woman." But they took her as well, bound in ropes, and brought them to the Governor. At that time she was twenty years old, and was attractive. The Governor asked her to worship the idols and promised her many things but she refused. He ordered that she be beaten with rods, and her dress to be torn off. The abbess cried out to him saying, "May God rip you up, O wild beast, for you want to put to shame this young orphan girl." The Governor was wrathful, and ordered St. Febronia to be squeezed by the wheel, and to comb her body with an iron comb until her flesh was completely torn. During all that, she prayed to the Lord asking for help. He then cut out her tongue and smashed her teeth so that she could not pray. But the Lord strengthened her and comforted her. Finally, the Governor ordered her head cut off, and she received the crown of martyrdom. A righteous man took her body and shrouded it with costly shrouds, and placed it in a golden box.

The same story can also be found here on this link

One of my friends whose name is Febronia too, has been so kind to send me these pics below for Saint Evronia/Febronia

The very first picture of St Evronia in this post (with the Coptic letters) is Egyptian and it was sent to me by Father Rofail Ava Mina, he actually sent me a whole pack (I love him a lot! he's always liked discussing my name with me as well as talking about history of related saints, he's an amazing researcher!)... The picture is also available sometimes at St George Church library in Sporting, Alexandria. If you need a hard copy of it, email me with your mailing address and I'll make sure to send you one, wherever you are!

The picture also has a hymn for Saint Evronia written on its backside, I believe it was written by nuns at St AboSefeen Marcorious Monastery... here it is:

click on the pic to enlarge

I have even tried to write a hymn about St Evronia around 6 ot 7 years ago, and it wasn't that bad, they even once said it at church, but it actually had complete violations for Arabic poetry rules! I'm not good at Arabic poetry anyhow!

I've written this post from information and stuff I collected throughout my life, there was no similar information available on the Internet about St Evronia that provided full details and icons for her... I hope I can spread her name and story everywhere because she is so great!

And finally, I want to say that I am proud to have such a beautiful name for such a great saint that I hope I may have a very small part of her bravery, courage, strength and faith...

May God bless everyone who reads her story and bless us with her prayers ...

[Poem] Think And Dream of Me

Think And Dream of Me
Poem #185
Written 6.6.09

Think and dream of me,
Love and devour me,
Lead me out of my misery,
Free me from sadness’ slavery,
That controlled my soul before,
I had you in my life to adore…

When into my life you came,
Nothing remained the same;
Blessings overwhelmed me,
Real happiness never left me.
And as my heart stayed with you,
My dreams have all come true…

I want you to have me, forever,
Whenever, whatever, wherever,
I don’t care about anything,
Because my heart will always sing,
As long as you hold me inside you,
Showing me the love I never knew…

[Poem] As I Listened to Every Word

As I Listened to Every Word
Poem #183
Written 3.6.09

I wept as I listened to every word;
I was moved by all what I heard,
Sorrow filled my little heart,
My insides felt so torn apart…
Rivers of tears ran down my face,
I recalled every memory and place,
I recalled the heaven I lived in,
The happiness I had deep within.
And now all what I have is fear,
And worry, as you’re not here;
You don’t want to talk to me,
You don’t want to hear me,
I keep wondering, what you do,
I wish to hear news about you…

I wept more as I listened to every word;
I couldn’t bear all what I heard,
I couldn’t listen to this love song,
I can’t forget you, I still to you long.
And as the music filled my ears,
I saw before me many happy years,
With you, sharing, laughing, dreaming;
My future suddenly seemed gleaming…

But all these were simply dreams,
I can’t make any of them come true,
The road is as tough as it seems,
Will I ever be able to reach you?

[Poem] Fly Like An Eagle

Fly Like An Eagle
Poem #182
Written 1.6.09

I want to have the strength and power,
To fly like an eagle, to sway like a flower,
From life’s chains I want to be free,
I want to get out the greatness in me,
To show everyone what I have inside,
And inspire the world with my pride;
To prove that a truly confidence soul,
Can stand up after every wrecking fall,
To send my message to everyone:
"There is no challenge that can’t be won,
No fierce fight can ever destroy you,
No rough road you can’t walk through"
I want to make my dreams come true,
And do something creative and new...
I wonder if I am strong enough to,
Be the eagle that flies through!

Mireille Mathieu & Patrick Duffy - Together We're Strong 1983

A great song I came across while I was listening to the radio.. I don't know how come I never listened to it before now! This is one of the most amazing lyrics I've listened to, it's real poetry not just a bunch of words forming a cool song. Their performance is also so amazing... Totally love it!

My favorite lines are "We're only one when we are two"..."I only know when we're apart, I only live with half a heart" ... but I do love every single word in it!

Mireille Mathieu & Patrick Duffy - Together We're Strong

A great man once said,
"Winter never fails to turn into Spring"
And though we are so different, you and I
When we're together, even the cold of December
Feels like the middle of May

You are the night, I am the day
You are the star that shows the way
You are the instrument I play
You are the words I long to say

You are the land, I am the sea
You are in counterpoint to me
And we agree to disagree
No need to lie

I only know when we're apart
I only live with half a heart
I need your hand to play my card

Together we're strong
We can't go wrong

And now we know just what to do
And how we get our meaning through
We're only one when we are two

Together we're strong
We can't go wrong

And every time your eyes meet mine
I feel the world fall into line
I'm passing on that good luck sign
Let's keep hanging on

And now we know just what to do
And how we get our meaning through
We're only one when we are two
Together we're strong

And I will always try to understand you
I'll be there if you should need me
Plan you in my life
There's so much we can share with each other
But if we say goodbye, it's not forever
I can't lose you now I've found you
I need you in my life
'Cause now you're in my life

And together we're strong
There are so many ways of looking at the world
Everyone has a different dream
Yours may not be the same as mine
But when we're together
We can make them all come true
