Two roads diverged in a yellow wood
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
to where it bent in the undergrowth;
that’s what Frost said!
And…I crossed the road lead me to you
And....I found you!
Among the mists of the cloudy forests
among the flowers and trees
among the buses and the leaves
I heard the voice of your breath!

And think a while in silence
For those who loved you more dear!
For they are the ones
Who will never meant
To cause you sorrow or pain!
And bring this one with you
To those bright colorful land
Holding softly the hand!

Thanks for the trial..
For the direction..
For the discovery..
Thanks for everything!


Reading the book of your eyes
believe me I was surprised!
Meeting you I emphasized
the reason you were unique!
troublesome were the issue
difficult book to go on..
I really want to say I’ve missed you
But I must hang on!

Close your eyes softly
to stop reading this book
let me touch its cover
And make my trouble over!


I will clean the rocks of your road
To find it easy when you come
I’ll beg the birds.. The winds... Even the weather
To have some nest when you fly,
I’ll tell the nature to be pretty
To smell the perfumes of my land!
When it’s time to fly away
I’ll keep your breath deeply inside,
I’ll let my soul to decide
And hold the colour of your eyes
Softly... gently. by my side…

  1. Poetess Rania's work is an inspiration. Diving deep into the mysterious, and glorious subject of love, and the lengths we go to in order to keep it, and hold it forever. I very much enjoyed your poems! Barbara Suen USA Keep writing Rania!
