A CHRISTIAN SPEAKS TO A MUSLIM FRIEND

A Christian Speaks To A Muslim Friend

Smiles touch the eyes
I arise to the hope of salvation
In our hellos and goodbyes
attended by honest communication

I lean in to hear you speak
Tell me what is on your mind
I will not trick or tweak
The treasure that I find

Yet I will voice where we part
Not to change your direction
I hope you will listen to my heart
With friendly love and affection

For you and I would gladly snatch
Each other to our spiritual side
If you or I play ball, one would catch
Save the other in the roaring tide

Love wants the best in the other
We spend daylight in comparison
We can still be a sister and brother
Though you in faith be a Saracen*

In the deviation of Jesus history,
Our two religions do not integrate,
And the “trinity of God” mystery.

Yet let us choose to love, not hate
