‘I Saw Her Last Night’ by Ahmed Nader Gretly

For RG

I saw her last night

At that moment where

One is not sure whether

One is wide awake or

In deep slumber.

The ‘In-Between’, where

Fact and fiction intermix

Into  vivid waves of


I saw her last night

Walking on fields of clouds,

Looking at the world with

Eyes so bright, so true.

Absorbing the whole universe

Into her soul like a child would

Letting all that cosmic

Energy seep into her


I saw her last night

She hovered on cotton-candy clouds

Listening to the rhythm of the earth,

Like music, far away on a windy street.

Letting the sound of bliss

Waft into her mind that

Was once filled with the aftermath

Of Past lives, past experiences like dark


I saw her last night

“Let us sing songs of dreams,”

She said “Songs of hopes

and promises that’ll ever-last.

Let us raise our voices to the stars and

Dance like utter fools

Like children ’til the end of


I saw her last night

I saw her last night
