I hear the soft footsteps
on the surface of my heart
and feel the sigh of your whisper
in the fabric of my soul
even today!

How long has it been?
I’ve stopped counting the days and weeks
or months and years. Why bother,
when I cycle my hours into days and nights
faking sleep and smiles in circadian rhythm.

This much I know, that when you
step into my thoughts, and I imagine you
gazing at me, my heart smiles, and when you
whisper my name, I tremble~
even today!

About Zakiah

I write poetry and some fiction, have a book that was published in 2012. . . Stray Thoughts/Winged Words. I have four grandchildren, ages 16 and half to almost 16 months. I love the ocean, and grew up along the Indian Ocean in South India. I am a retired physician. Don't know much else to say. Thanks for reading. That has been my profile for so many years. My daughter Saadia a great poet and story teller, has two sons; the oldest grandson is now 21 years old, doing architectural engineering at Missouri S&T in Rolla MO. His younger brother is almost 16 and taking driving lessons seriously and is in High School. The other two grandsons, children of my son Sayeed, are 9 and 5. I have recently published another book titled Gulistan, A home of Flowers. It has stories and memories of my childhood and of a distant land which I still consider as my HOME., even though I have lived here in the US for more than fifty years. Hope to see you on my blog.

  4. I need to read this one to Alicia. It’s gorgeous!

    We went through a number of your published poems last year. It is a challenge to do sight translation of poetry. This one in particular makes me thrilled to be in a truly romantic relationship

    We are talking to an agent in the Fort Myers/Naples area. Properties near the beach are much more expensive. And we would like to stay in a condo, so that we can cook and have a place to move around. Let’s see what happens. I will let you know if we get something. Love to Alicia.
