I Came to Your Door

Peace, one and all…

yahazrat-emaulana

I came to your door
all unknowingly
and still,
you did not turn me away.

Turning this way and that,
in my unfortunate state,
I found my way to you,
to find your hand already outstretched.

You spoke into the very heart of me
and I felt the breath of heaven:
‘Come back to life,
and walk beneath the sun once more’.

I am yours beloved friend.
Let the world think whatsoever it will:
should a grain of sand ever be ashamed
of the beauty of the rising sun?
