The Last Goodbye

How did you say goodbye to him

When you know he will leave

Leave you forever in grief

 

How did you say goodbye to him

The swords from the opponent directed to his neck

The hungry lowly birth grasping to touch his cloak

 

How did you say goodbye to him

He will fight the hundreds of wolf alone

Will you ever see him again in the afternoon?

 

How did you say goodbye to him

His blood will cover the land

His lovers will suddenly become orphan

 

How did you say goodbye to him

“oh..it would be better if the sky fall down to the earth”

The tragedy shall remains forever, slicing your heart

 

How did you say goodbye to him

You keep seeing him in sight

Now you’ll only see the darkest night.

 

i write this last night and feel so emotional deep here. Saying goodbye is never easy. i can’t imagine how did Lady Zainab said goodbye (the last goodbye) to his brother Imam Hussain in Karbala, before Imam Hussain go alone to fight the enemy. Both knowing that they will never see each other again.. it’s too painful. How did Zainab bear such a pain and still had a beautiful patience.

“I see nothing but beauty..”
