Excerpts From Persian Poetry
Poem By Yasmin Khan
Clocks ticking away time, minds lying in bed, filled with
confusion of loss, not able to understand why it happens.
Deepening depressions sucking them in, life filled with
sorrow, drowning in tears of sadness.
Nothing able to penetrate a mind dying in grief, a lone
and solitary journey each of us will eventually be making.
Reaching out, touching those who are going through this
difficult time, just BEing there for them.
You may be their only connection to the reality of their
lives for a while.
Give your heart, have patience and don't give up on them,
they will come to feel your support and love.
Appreciating the fact that someone actually felt love and
compassion for them in spite of the deep darkness they have
been going through.
