Freedom finds me waiting
A few more minutes
Waiting for me
I will greet her with love and longing
I will respect her with dignity and grace
I will smell her sweetness and breathe her reality
I will accept her as a friend and offer her a loyal and
sincere heart
And, most of all, I will thank Allah who made her possible.
