يوم ميلادي


وفي يومٍ...من صيف كلِّ عام
والعمر يمضي كما الغمام
أقف هنا
كشاعرٍ على الأطلال
أسأل من أنا؟
بين الحقيقة والخيال
وأنظر إليكْ
يا صورةً باليةً...في ألبوم ذكرياتي
لست تشبه من أرى اليوم في مرآتي
وأبحث عنكْ
هناك في ملاعب ضيعتي
في ضحكتي
في أشيائيَ الصغيرة
صوت المؤذن في الظهيرة
رائحةُ الأرض بعد المطر
غناء جدتي...للقمر!
حقائب السفر
والرحيل...عند الَسَحَر.

ووتتهاوى أوراق رُزنامتي
صوراً... من حياتي
فرحاً وأحزان
ضحكة...وأشجان
غابت في الزمان
آثاراً لن تنمحي...على الأبدان!
ويبقى السؤال
"ماذا بعد؟"
هنا ما أزال
على الوعد
"بعامٍ سعيد"
حبٍّ جديد
رسائَلَ في بريدي
صوتاً...من بعيدِ
درباً مضيئاً...بأجملِ نور
ورداً...وزهور!
وفي يوم ميلادي
بعيداً عن بلادي
تسألُ يا فؤادي
فهل تراكِ تجيبين؟
(الصورة: بيروت في 1 أيار 1977)

عمرنا محسوب بعدد النّدوب التي على أجسادنا. في "الأشياء الصّغيرة". بأخطاء ارتكبناها وأبواب فتحناها وحدود تجاوزناها.
انشالله تكون كسّرت كتير حدود... وكلّ سنة وإنت بخير :)

Hashem,
I hope you have the best year of your life...every year... Events may leave scars on your soul but it's the scars that distinguish you from the next person (3alamat farikah)... I think you have enough 3alamat farikah in the eyes of everybody who knows you that make you an exceptional friend...
Ya 3azizi, in the day where your "nostalgia" is bound to explode I hope that the coming year will bring you someone to shift your same passionate nostalgia into a passionate excitment for the future, the next day, the next year, the next goal to conquer and "less traveled way" to go by...
I wish you the best, as always,
Hussein

This passion you have is bound to get you to a happy end my friend, I wish it will be soon :)
