The Door of No Return

This door swings wide

allowing no escape

we prepare by degrees

at the site of friends lovers

this is the meaning

of their passing

to let us know what comes to all

we are from Allah and to Him we return.

so do not connect to illusions or material things

we see husbands, lovers, children may go on their time

we love them but no attachments but to God

all things shall go from us no matter what

naked we come naked we go

we cannot cling for love

for love shall go in the end

and where are we

lost in the heart

wondering why

when we should know

all is illusion

there is no meaning in the physical

a mirage

shifting mirrors in the sun

blinding us to the real

behind the real.

so live my friend

enjoy the moment

it is all there is.
