'For the Tears that I Cry . . .'

For the tears that I cry, I ask of nothing
For there is nothing that can convince me once again.
For the tears that I weep, I'll exchange silence
For my isolation is more comforting than a friend.
For the tears that I shed, please grant me patience
For only You can truly comfort my aching heart.
So for the tears that I cry, bestow upon me solace
For without You my world would surely fall apart.

Reading your poem “For the Tears That I Cry…” it gives a sense, as if, you want to express your inmost feelings…sometimes, when we get detached from the worldliness and yearn the love of Allah (SWT)—then there’s an outburst of those serene submission, that dulcet signs of piety.

May Allah (SWT) enhance you, with piety. Aa’meen!

Ameen Allahumma, ameen. JazakAllah khair for your du'a.

When one feels like a prisoner in a chaotic world, expression through words enables a profound sense of inner freedom.

May The Beloved (Swt) grant and increase us all in our piety and love of Him (Swt), ameen.

I understand your feelings--but, deem the world as 'prison', and thyself as a 'wayfarer', and the worldly life as an 'ordeal and journey'.

Be moderate in your feelings, and may Allah(SWT) accept your legitimate supplications.
