I Was Not

An original poem by Rabia Subhani

I was not a poet

Yet you gave me words to share my soul

I was not a singer

Yet you brought forth naats from my lips

I was not a dancer

Yet I danced in ecstasy as I lost myself in you

I was not listening

Until my ears heard the harmonious sounds of voices chanting zikr

I was not looking

Until I beheld your brilliance reflected in the silver hues of moonlight

I was not sure about love

Yet now I am drowning in the fathomless depths of your love, oh God!

I was not

Until I was.
