The Sun longs for the day that it can light your grave,

The stars long for the day that they can be shamed by the beauty of your grave,

The wind longs for the day that it can brush your grave,

The clouds dream of the day they can shade your grave,

The earth, it yearns for the day it can reveal your grave.

 

The birds long for the day that they can revolve around your grave,

Written words, they yearn to be read, by your grave.

 

Dry lips long for the day they can kiss your grave,

Shaking knees long for the day they can kneel by your grave,

Tearing eyes dream of the day they can weep by your grave,

Wrinkled foreheads long for the day they can rest on your grave,

Raised hands long for the day they can clutch your grave,

Melancholic tongues yearn for the day they can praise you by your grave,

Dedicated soldiers long for the day they can stand guard by your grave.

 

The Lovers of Fatima long for the day they can chain themselves to her grave…
