How Can You Come To Me?

Screen Shot 2021-09-17 at 12.39.29 PM

How can you come to me?
If I never even heard your voice
call my name?
Will you come in a written chat,
imposed over the clouds,
or across the scrim
of my closed eyes?

Will your words just enter me
without words, so I feel
you are here now?
In silence.. I will just know?
Will you come to me as a warrior,
a slick hip city girl,
my precious little “Natskies “
peeking around corners,

going round n round?

What role will you be wrapped in
or maybe not in actor form..
just Mein Direktor,,
escorting me to my place?
Asking me to sit here please,
and in your very Nat-way,
when I say, “Oh Nat I miss you”
just wink and answer, “I knew you’d say that”

    One more heart-touching piece from you, Karima. You feel Nat in your heart, and I can feel you, and Nat (through you). It was such a unique relationship, and I’m sure that it will continue for all days to come. Your own creativity will speak for her too. So stay happy and blessed, my friend 😊💐💖

    • .Oh Kaushal…I do..I feel Nat in my heart and I find it so , not sure the word, uplifting for me personally, to see that you captured what a unique relationship we had. In our movie The Connection I said, “Not Lovers in the conventional sense…we are Creators” It was so unique and so close. Yes, I pray that I will always feel that connection in some way..even now.. Thank you for your beautifu words Kaushal…you have lifted my soul a bit higher with them.❤️🙏🦋
