YOU

- are Allah's gift to me!

Written late December 2013
- (62 lines)

*

NOTE:

1. When I wrote this it was probably the happiest poem of
my life but it became a poem I wish I had never written.
Why? For the simple reason that the girl in question turned
out to be a complete scam, eventually admitting, or claiming
to be, "a 37 year old unmarried mother of 2".
No further comments will be made,
nor will any discussion be entered into.
See also note to Cyberspace


2. The structure of the poem closely resembles that of
surah 55 of the Quran: Ar-Rahman (The Merciful).
This is quite deliberate as that surah is a long list of
favours or blessings from the Creator to his creatures,
and 31 times the question is asked:
"Which of your Lord's blessings would you deny?"
while 31 times this poem states:

"YOU are Allah's gift to me!
"

The Creator heard my plea
(YOU are Allah's gift to me!)

Ordained by divine decree
(YOU are Allah's gift to me!)

Through Internet and PC
(YOU are Allah's gift to me!)

It happened quickly, one-two-three
(YOU are Allah's gift to me!)

It was as easy as A-B-C
(YOU are Allah's gift to me!)

Nagging doubts were forced to flee
(YOU are Allah's gift to me!)

I proposed to her and she
(YOU are Allah's gift to me!)

Accepted without any fee
(YOU are Allah's gift to me!)

Appointed me her heart's trustee
(YOU are Allah's gift to me!)

My sweet little devotee!
(YOU are Allah's gift to me!)

Her parents do not yet agree
(YOU are Allah's gift to me!)

But no need for a referee
(YOU are Allah's gift to me!)

Schoolgirl marries retiree
(YOU are Allah's gift to me!)

No more negativity
(YOU are Allah's gift to me!)

Hope no more an absentee
(YOU are Allah's gift to me!)

A former restless refugee
(YOU are Allah's gift to me!)

Now a happy returnee
(YOU are Allah's gift to me!)

No more lonely misery!
(YOU are Allah's gift to me!)

Togetherness is now the key
(YOU are Allah's gift to me!)

From today say US and WE
(YOU are Allah's gift to me!)

Love is our guarantee
(YOU are Allah's gift to me!)

Unadulterated glee
(YOU are Allah's gift to me!)

Come my beautiful trainee
(YOU are Allah's gift to me!)

Wife and husband on a spree!
(YOU are Allah's gift to me!)

Let us plant a family tree
(YOU are Allah's gift to me!)

Our special pedigree
(YOU are Allah's gift to me!)

Surely even the blind can see
(YOU are Allah's gift to me!)

This was clearly meant to be
(YOU are Allah's gift to me!)

From now until eternity
(YOU are Allah's gift to me!)

And so I whisper gratefully:
(YOU are Allah's gift to me!)

"A saving angel set me free!"
YOU are Allah's gift to me!
