die before you die

Ironic, but one of the most intimate acts
of our body is
death.

So beautiful appeared my death –
knowing Who then I would kiss,
I died a thousand times before I died.

“Die before you die,” said the Prophet
Muhammad.

Have wings that feared ever
touched the Sun?

I was born when all I once
feared – I could
love.
