Sing Fakeer

your song
can grow love anywhere
it has wings
to reach the outermost stars
your music
speaks to the One i love
the secrets
i cannot utter
in words

i have become
an open, aching heart
filled with a turning,
twisting pain
that flames
my perpetual longing-blaze
curving, lengthening,
kissing the sky

calling out
the one Name it knows

sing, fakeer,
sing that Name

carry me
on the wings of your song
into my Beloved’s heart
