Ramallah



by Shawn Smith Oct 19, 2019

Oh my beloved, don't you know I love you with all my heart?
Why do you remain separated from me?
Why are you so far away?

I am filled with desire for you.
Why can I not reach out and touch you?
Why can I not be with you, my love?

To see you, to taste you, to smell you and be enwrapped by your embrace,
This is what makes my heart beat faster,
This is what keeps me sleepless at night.

Come close to me, my darling, so that we may become as one.
So that when we become one we become many,
And the fruit of our love will bring us the liberation we both seek.
