Night Time Chorus

Surreal moments before dawn
Heart strings intertwine
A chorus so sublime
And it repeats with all that glorious familiarity
The verses we will write
Our hands moved by biro pens
21st century and romanticism doesn’t end
And sometimes things don’t have to rhyme
To be beautiful
They just need to happen at exactly the right time
In that moment if I could be seated any closer to you
I would
To hear your heart beat with mine
To feel my soul gently press against yours
To live it through your eyes
Oh what tremendous vision I envision
Soft whispers are immense to open ears
We read the book of hope and fear
Voices tremble at our lowly state
There is an overwhelming desire to fill the silence
For tonight we sing
The songs of tied-up souls
I yearn for the words to flow
Letting them merge lovingly with yours
As we recite the chorus once more

In the narration of al-Baraa` Ibn 'Aazib (may Allah be pleased with him) the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said:
Adorn your voices with the Quran.  
Abu Dawud. Authenticated by Al-Albaanee 

Disclaimer: the above poem, about reciting Quran and learning tajweed, was meant only to inspire actually
'Reciting the Quran in a melodious way whereby it resembles the melody of a song is disliked and is an innovation, a ruling clearly mentioned by Malik, al-Shafi'i, Ahmad bin Hanbal and other imams as well.'
Stated by Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah
