    If I could talk to you in your language
    If I could communicate to you through
    Arabic
    I would discover you
    I wished that I could be with you
    I wished that I could be in love with you
    I would say to you how sorry I am that I hurt you
    I would say to you how proud I am to know you
    And hope that you could understand
    And just to be where you are
    In your world
    To reach out to you
    Where you could see that my feelings are true
    No matter what you do
    Don't cry, boo
    Hassan, don't cry
    Sometimes we act so childish
    It makes it harder everytime
    And sometimes I wish I could see the world through your eyes
    And be enlightened and come to realize
    That what you said is true
    And all would be cool
    Yet I can not be weak in what I believe
    About someone so passionately
    And sometimes wish that you could see
    How much I need to be free
    And tears
    Shed
    To grieve
    To heal the soul
    To relieve
    And as I look at you looking at me
    I knew you as you were known
    And you knew me
    Wish the world could see what we see
    In a perfect world
    It wouldn't matter what we believed
    Yet that is not reality
    And in arabic I would say these things
    Wish I could talk to you in your language
    Even though it's not your native language
    Even though it's not your first language
    Wish I could kiss your eyes
    And everything would be alright
    If I could talk to you in Arabic
    Maybe you wouldn't be afraid
    You always talk about Allah and how he is so great
    Or recite Arabic out loud
    And you are so proud
    I want to talk to you
    So I can get through
    I want to meet you where you are
    No matter how far
    And to kiss the sky
    Prelude
    To when Jesus was alive
    Wish you could see
    How much he tried to show the world
    His love for you and I
    And shed his blood on Calvary
    And shed his blood for you and me
    I wish you could see that you don't have to hurt anymore
    That there is a cure
    And that His love will endure forever more
    And I would say this in Arabic
    If I could talk to you in Arabic
    Maybe you would listen
    Maybe until I'm finished
    In Arabic
    I would recite to you like you recite the Quran
    I would recite the language of love
    As each word flowed off my tongue
    Your heart would be won
    If I could speak in your tongue

    Sista, I understand and feel this pain and frustration all too well. This was so beautiful and emotionally eloquent. The language that transcends all religions, divisions, and gaps is love and supreme understanding. Sometimes we have to reach deeper than our patience, for something far more divine, let your love speak from the soul and the heart, and through that he will eventually see the light in you, and you will both learn to communicate on a higher level than this English language and words define. Peace.
