Basmah Mohamed expresses her happiness from a deeper connection

I look at you and I’m in awe

You paint vibrant colours on my soul and ignite a spark in my heart from the warmth you radiate

You’re a golden goddess walking this earth so effortlessly with a halo gleaming above your head

You shine with prosperity and wisdom.

They said, “paint her eyes and you’ll paint a galaxy”

And now galaxies glisten in your eyes as you smile and become my guide

Through the many gardens that we stumble upon

Though no garden can bloom a flower as extravagant as you.

The endless nights at your side

Holding me captive with your laugh that kills me every time

I’m back alive because your presence is a blessing sent from the heavens.

Who knew

Heaven is when I’m with you.
