[Poem] I Don't Deserve to Have You

I Don't Deserve to Have You
Poem #246
Written 27.1.2010

This poem is inspired from my own idea of the “fairness of life”, that I personally believe that one can’t get everything he/she wants from life and that when God gives something, He takes something else instead. But He knows the priorities of the things we should have, and things we shouldn’t.
However, I have realized that in our lives, we have too many good things that we are not thankful for. This ‘thankfulness’ spirit is the thing that most of us miss: we don’t actually thank God enough for what we have, because when we look at the things that we have that many others don't have, we find ourselves very blessed…
Mainly the story of this lady inspired me a lot…Watch it here (with English Subtitles)
Part 1
Part 2

This was how the idea of this poem popped into my head…

I certainly don’t deserve to have you,
I’ve had too many blessings in life,
Including meeting and loving you,
It’d be too perfect if I’m your wife…

But in this world, no body gets it all,
There has to be some sacrifice,
So, am I ready to take this fall?
Am I ready to pay life this price?

I am not sure I’ll be able to live,
If my life is going to exclude you,
But I know I’ll have to forgive,
This fate that from me stole you…

And after it’s over, my broken heart,
Will keep and cherish your memories,
It will love you even when we’re apart,
And I will still sing those sad melodies…

[Poem] Your Right to Forget Me

Your Right to Forget Me
Poem #245
Written 22.1.2010

It’s totally your right to forget me,
I can’t blame you, you are free…
But my heart wants to blame you,
Because of the feelings it has for you,
The feelings which give my life a meaning,
My only source of peace and healing…
But my heart feels hurt and sad,
There’s pain you continue to add…
You can love again but what about me?
I can’t accept anyone else to have me…
There is nothing I know now for sure,
Except all this pain I daily endure,
Except tears that silently come down,
In a sea of loneliness, in which I drown…
Can you save me? Or is it too late?
Can you have me? Or isn’t it my fate?

[Poem] I Don't Need Dreams

I Don't Need Dreams
Poem #244
Written 15.1.2010

Usually, at night, people have dreams,
But, too bad, I don’t have any dreams,
I wish I did, so that in them I host you,
Knowing that you’ll make them come true…
But I don’t need any dreams to see you,
You’re in front of me in everything I do…

I see you in a little girl’s innocent smile,
Spreading joy, making life worthwhile…
I see you in a unique magical love song,
With a melody that never goes wrong…
I see you in a bird that, like no other, soars,
With its wisdom, opening all closed doors…

So, I don’t need to see you in any dreams,
Everywhere around me, your love gleams,
It guides me in every tough step I take,
It helps me in any puzzling decision I make,
And I have you locked up in my tiny heart,
That’s why from me you’re never apart…

[Poem] Little, Scared and Insecure

Little, Scared and Insecure
Poem #243
Written 11.1.10

I feel little, scared and insecure…
Can you help me fight and endure?
Can you strengthen me and hold me?
Can you give me peace and assure me,
That this messy life will be alright,
That all these sad days will be bright,
That I can win by being who I am,
That I can beat and rise above them,
Those who are filling my days with fear,
Stealing my joy with a threat so near…
So can you be here for me; I need you?
Can you lead me to a life that is new?
A life where smiles are never-ending,
A life where happiness is transcending…

[Poem] Rest and Scream

Rest and Scream
Poem #242
Written 11.1.10

I need to rest, I have to sleep!
But I need to talk, and even scream!
Am I sinking? The sea looks too deep,
Are things as bad as they seem?

Where am I heading, I can’t see,
I’m blindfolded, am I being killed?
But even if my body seizes to be,
My soul is alive, not to be killed…

But I want to be left in peace, alone,
Can I run away from this all?
I want to rest silently on my own,
I’m not a coward, but I’m not whole…

مديح كيهكي نادر للثالوث القدوس

مديح نادر للثالوث القدوس يقال على الهوس الثالث ( أي قبله) في شهر كيهك المبارك
قاله الشمامسة بحضور نيافة الأنبا رافائيل لأول مرة في تسبحة كيهك يوم الاثنين 4 يناير  2010 بالكنيسة المرقسية بكلوت بك
المديح رائع جدا
كلماته طقسية عقائدية أورثوذكسية عميقة
ولحنه نادر يختلف من شطر لآخر، يبدأ هادئاً أول كل بيت ويعلو بالتدريج ثم ينخفض في نهاية البيت
ويبدأ كل شطر بآخر نغمة من الشطر الذي يسبقه

حمل المديح صوت من هنا
هذه هي النسخة الوحيدة المسجلة للحن حتى الآن بصوت المعلم زاهر، بطيئة بعض الشيء لكنها ذات جودة جيدة

[Poem] I Don’t Want to Marry You

I Don’t Want to Marry You
Poem #241
Written 3.1.10

"My first poem in 2010"
2010 for me marks a decade of writing English poetry..

This poem is inspired by an episode of the Oprah Winfrey Show, where there was a lady who said that she loved her husband more than she loved her kids and there was a lot of controversy about what she said…

The thoughts I express in the poem aren’t exactly what I believe in personally, but I believe they’re worth writing!

As usual, don't relate it personally to me :) it's just from my imagination!

I love you so, but I don’t want to marry you,
I’m scared to death about losing you,
I’ll be jealous if you love our kids more,
I want to be the only one you’ll ever adore…
If I marry you, I’ll have nothing more to wish for,
My prayers won’t be as strong as before,
Yes, I’ll be in heaven, life will be too complete,
But will everything one day not be as sweet?
I can’t lose any of what I’ll have at all,
I won’t bear it; I won’t take the fall…
But in spite of any crazy thought in my head,
You’ll always be my love until I’m dead!
