My eyes laugh and my heart cries

Today

I wish..
I could be with you
You little child with needles and cables
to hold your tiny hands in mine

I wish..
I could be with you
You little orphan with so many others
to share my parents with

I wish..
I could be with you
You elderly abandoned by your destiny
to share my home with

I wish..
I could be with you
You the one who cannot walk
to share my support with

I wish..
I could be with you
You the one who cannot talk
to share my words with

I wish..
I could be with you
You innocent prisoner
to share my faith with

I wish..
I could be with you
You soul lying in the dark
to share my blankets with

I wish..
I could be with you
You wounded struggler
to share my jihad with

I wish..
I could be with you
You families in one tent
To share my food with

I wish..
I could be with you
My innocent deflowered sisters
To share my protector with

I wish..
I could be with you.

on this joyous day of Eid, I had similar thought running through my head!

May Allah reward you for your intention to share the sufferings.
