Sweet Bird

Leaping into the air, quickly flapping its wings

Sudden, swift action is what inspiration brings

Desperate to fly higher and higher

Wishing never to slow, never to tire

Full of emotion, in its own way it yelled

This little bird’s chest stretched and swelled

Like this bird, become agitated!

Seek nearness to the Most Loving and desperately yearn

How? Sit humbly at the Ahlulbayt’s (AS) door and learn

Shake the ice, heat the soul with holy names

Don’t let every day of yours be the same

Be wise – know humility helps you rise above

Be wise – and trade self-importance for love

Leap from the branch!

There is much to do

Each second is precious, each hour is new

Learn from this bird, foster that zeal

Which opens the eyes to what is real.
