A Bloom in Heaven

By Yohanna Abdullah
To my dearest sister in heaven, inshaallah, Aneez Fathima
You are a bloom in heaven
That graces the perfumed paradise
Your tears are ornaments shining bright
Your patience and prayer is your might
You have been to the fire and back
A warrior, you have braved the greatest battles
Your heart, your spirit broken
You emerge victorious, whole
The secret you hold in your budding petals
The perfection of your Lover unfolds
