All About You

by Tirzah Shams

My feelings for you
Will never come out
They will remain hidden
No one will find out

It will stay in the deepest
Corner of my heart
Like a hidden symbol
Within a piece of art

My love for you will
Forever remain forbidden
And as long as I live
It’ll remain hidden

The shine in your eyes
That only I can see
The care on your face
When you look at me

The plucker of your lips
When you are confused
The smirk on their edges
When you are amused

The gentleness of your hands
When they touch my skin
No sign of the wars
Through which they have been

Do love me?
I would like to unfold
The answer of one question
You never told

Forever Hidden

by Tirzah Shams

Those cloaked figures clouded my past
Time is going away too fast

I need you to show me the moonlight
Entangled in the darkest night

You taught me to be so strong
What we are is forever wrong

The blood in my veins is yours forever
I’ll always be free when we are together

And till I dream, I dream of you
I love you so much I never knew

But our love is too forbidden
It will remain forever hidden

What is the love of Jesus?

(a poem)

A love not self centered
A love always remembered
A love that would free us
Is the love of Jesus

The Messiah, the chosen one
He died on the cross for what we have done
A love that would save us
Is the love of Jesus

The Lord of Moses, the Lord of Abraham
He suffered for our sins and became the lamb
A love that would complete us
Is the love of Jesus

He lived on earth and saved my soul
He gave me a chance to finally feel whole
A love with a second chance for us
Is the love of Jesus

He rose from the dead to give us new life
Prepared for us a place in afterlife
A love that would claim us
Is the love of Jesus
