Open your eyes

Nahida the exiled Palestinian

And come with me

I want to show you something

Some times, we waste our lives

Searching and dreaming of paradise


Paradise is near… it's here

All around us

And deep within

If only we could hear

Hills, valleys, meadows and mountains
Music to the eye, healing to the soul

Creeks, rivers, seas and oceans
Azure compassion inviting for devotion

Jasmine, lilies, daisies, and roses

Vibrant poetry, tender and sublime

Sand, Pebbles, rocks and stones

Majestic beauty, humbling down

Forests, oasis, deserts in bloom

Melodies of angels, heartrending tune

Dancing galaxies and twinkling stars

Breathtaking splendour

Makes you want to cry

Can you feel your body trembling?

Can you hear the pounding of your heart?

See this planet

It’s ours

This is our planet

And we are LIVING in it

To cherish

To enjoy

To hold dear

Deep within our hearts

Wrapped with love

Offered with affection

A bequest … magnificent
From the Most Compassionate

Most Merciful, Most High

See this beauty

Who would want to destroy that?

See this innocence

Who would want to hurt that?

See this purity

Who would want to spoil that?

See this gentleness

Who would want to upset that?

See this love

Who would want to reject that?

See this mercy

Who would want crush that?


Am falling on my knees


Don’t let them

Don’t let them

Don’t let them

Don’t let them

Don’t let them

I plead with Thee

Don’t let them mess that up

Don’t let them tear it down
