شخصٌ واحدٌ فقط سيمرُّ في حياتك خطوطُ يديهِ تشبه خارطةَ وطنك،
ما إنْ يسحب كفّهُ من مصافحتِك حتّى تشعرَ أنّك في المنفى
There will be only one person passing through your life whose hand lines resemble the map of your homeland,
Once he pulls his palm from your handshake, you will feel like you're in exile.

في كل صباح يكتبون على نوافذ قلبي سيعودون يوماً وما أكثر الصباحات الخيبة
Every morning they write on the windows of my heart that they will return one day.
And how much disappointed those mornings are.

لَمْ أشرَبْ القَهوةَ ..
إِلّا للِبَحثْ عَنْ مَرارةَ أكْثَر مِنْ فِراقِكَ
وَلَمْ أَجِدْ
I didn't drink coffee..
Except to search for more bitterness than your separation
And I didn't find.

Imagine being written about this way? 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In my Theory of Knowledge class, we’re discussing the differences between language and all of the other things that language carries with it. I’m really loving it, because as a student of literature and history I always love to pick out and analyze how they overlap. 
Anyways, in class we discussed how we mostly speak in English when we’re discussing in class or stating facts and having knowledge-based debates, but how none of us ever really have deep conversations or arguments with loved ones in English; we always express ourselves in Arabic. 
As someone who grew up reading English books exclusively, my Arabic is as good as it is because I spoke mainly in Arabic with my family. However, this year (as I grow older), one of my goals is to strengthen my Arabic and read and write in it as well as I do in English. But, I was very happy to discover that despite the imbalance between my fluency in both languages, Arabic will always represent love, community, sorrow, history, passion, and more, better than English ever will, and I think that’s more important than anything. 
I love to discover language and hear different people’s stories with it, so please feel free to add to this.

ولَديك كُل أسباب البُكاء .. ولاتمتلكُ دمعتةً واحِدة
And you have every reason to cry although you don't have a single tear.

الحب الأول لا يموت بل يأتي الحب الحقيقي ليدفنه حيا
The first love does not die, but true love comes to bury it alive.

يا حياةُ: لا تكوني بخيلةً كالفرح ، كوني سخيَّــةً كالحزن ، كالانتظار ، كالشتاء ..
O Life! Don't be stingy like joy, be generous like sadness, like waiting, like winter.

ما هو الحب في رأيك؟
– أن تبتسم حين يبدأ احدهُم بالحديث معك، دون أن يخبرك شيءً مميزاً، فقط مرحباً
What do you think is love?
- To smile when someone starts talking to you, without telling you anything special, just 'hello.'
- Mahmoud Darwish
