A Letter From Heaven

Nahida Izzat
Exiled Palestinian

This poem is very special, it was written by my beloved niece Jeanine, read by her two beautiful daughters Jude and Jena, and put together by my lovely niece Sabreen

Don’t worry about me
I’m in heaven with my neighbor
She’s three just like me

I was greeted by some babies
They hugged me, held my hand
Told me not to be afraid
said, “this is what was planned”

They gave me a cute teddy bear
we played and sang a song
Heavens really beautiful mama
This is where I belong

I begged the doctor, grabbed his shirt
Please don’t let me die
I have a daddy who adores me
and a mommy who will cry

I drew you a picture mama
Of us as a family
With a rainbow in the background
and our flag with an olive tree

Wipe your tears ya baba
I’m right there by your side,
My bodies in the rubble now
but my spirit never died

Stay strong ya mama
Your baby girl is here
One thing you used to tell me
is to never live in fear

To the strongest humans, my Palestinians
Allah is with you and Israel will get their turn
To Allah we belong
and to him is our return

Nahida Izzat: "I am -a Jerusalem born- Palestinian refugee living in exile for over 40 years. I was forced to leave my homeland, Palestine at the age of seven during the six-day war. I am a mathematician by profession but art is one of my favorite pastimes, I love hand-made things, so I make dolls, cards, and most of my clothes. I also write poetry and participate in dialogues with known and unknown friends as I believe that communication is the first step to understanding, I believe in building bridges, not walls. My shy nature hinders me from public speaking, so I try to compensate for my shortcomings by writing! I started writing some years ago when my friends insisted I should write about my memories, experiences, and my feelings as a Palestinian. So I self-published two books, I Believe in Miracles and Palestine, The True Story. [Biographical information: Growing Gardens for Palestine]
