Heart

By Nasima

Are you there?
Conscious?
I call you to come back
Open your eyes
See your surroundings
Left only with black and darkness
Come to me
And take the hand of angels
God will give you
Breezes of air to touch
To smell
Break your prison
Never go back to long ago
It is passed
The lightness shining from east and west
North and south
Belongs to the voice of the heart
The bell of a church
The voice of a mosque
Are loud
But I hear only one voice
The voice of my heart
