Stitched


 

My wounded soul is a patch work

Chopped pieces of stubborn memories

Fraying at the edges

Vivid all around

Refusing to fade away

 

Stitched together with a thread of love

Embroidered with hope

My soul became a piece of art

Suited for a museum

 

Life On Hold Quilt


This quilt is very special to me ❤️

It’s called Life On Hold

It took me about three weeks to make, I finished on the last night, just before the departure of my beloved husband Khaled ❤️

I forgot to say that during my work on this quilt, Khaled was in hospital in a coma and it’s during those two agonizing weeks that quilt was embroidered

I gave it the name ‘Life on Hold’ reflecting Life in Exile for a Palestinian, and during my work my life was literally on hold during the period of Khaled being in coma 💔

I started making it just before Khaled went to hospital, he offered to help even though he never embroidered anything before  ❤️  He did try, bless his soul ❤️  and he managed a few stitches, and that is the more reason I love and cherish this quilt.

He left me part of him in there ❤️

 

 

 

I Love


.

Empty handed, I came

Except of a heart

Full of love

and a soul full of awe

 

 

Empty handed, I shall leave

Except of a heart

Full of love

and a soul full of awe

 

 

​If you ever wondered who I am

If you’re curious to know

If you want to remember me

With anything, after my departure

Two words

I LOVE

 

 

I love my children, a bequest from above

A peek into Heaven, and a love pure, Divine

 

 

I love my grandchildren, a whiff of angels, a taste of paradise

Hope they imbue, trust they sow and joy they enshrine

 

 

I love my mum, my flowery tiara, my song of praise

Her life she gives with glee, her heart tears for every passer by

 

 

I love my father, my crown, my honour, my wreath of fame

In humble gratitude, gracious blessings, my head bows down

 

 

I love my siblings every single one of them

Afar in their bodies, in my soul, ever so near, intertwined

 

 

I love my friends and kin

Those who are nigh and those who are far

Meadows of wildflowers, sway around my soul

 

I love you, and you and you and him and her

I love you all with all my heart, with all my soul

Every child gaping in awe

Every baby who saw the light and every one who’s not yet born

 

 

I Love

Every wrinkled face, carved with pain

Eyes shimmering with hope, soul filled with grace

Arms tender secure, what a holy embrace

 

I Love

Every father grinding his whole

To see his lovelies giggling with joy

A burning candle to brighten the way

Dispel all horror, secure the home

 

 

I Love

Every mother enduring agony

Sleepless nights, growing fears, flowing tears

No strings attached, no hidden agenda

Just love so pure, unconditional, perfect, sublime

 

I Love

I love the rustling of leaves, whispers of children, singing of nightingales

I love the crashing of waves on the seashore

I love the scent of jasmine blooming, and roses rambling on a wall

I love the aroma of grandma’s bread, fresh out of her taboon

 

I love colours of the rainbow

Blazing red​, burning orange

Bursting yellow, refreshing green

 Enchanting violet, magical indigo, and calming blue

 

 

I love animals, I love fish, I love birds and butterflies

I love leaves and coral reefs and dreamy skies

​I love grass, I love rivers and oceans azures

I love pebbles, I love cobbles and brave stones

I love mountains, rocky hills and sandy shores

I love raindrops, snowflakes, and misty due

I love trees and flowers​, all shapes and hues

 

 

I love the World

With all what it contains

With all my heart and all my soul

Every swimming star, twirling galaxy and dazzling blackhole

Every dancing atom, every praying particle, every spinning positron

 

Above all and most of all

I love the One and Only

Majestic beyond words

Compassionate beyond dreams

Infinite Beyond the grasp of minds

Whose love embraces all

 

 

If my heart would have a hole

My love would leak and fill a pail

The pail would flow and fill a stream

The stream would flood and fill a river

The river would deluge and fill an ocean

The ocean would expand and overflow

Earth would gush and drench the universe

Beneath the Throne of the One Most Loving, Most High
