I was just contemplating this topic and your poem showed up on my screen.
It's amazing how we all have such desperate obsessions for things that we desire, have our hearts broken when our hopes are dashed, and miss so many opportunities to be grateful, patient and 'be helpful' (cannot translate 'sadaqah' adequately.. short of brain cycles right now).
My brother and a few friends were helping out after the floods in Pakistan, and they asked someone there who had lost most of his family about how he was feeling. The gentleman replied that this is the will of Allah, and we have to be patient. Would Almighty Allah not reward one of His slaves who submit so completely to Him after such a difficult test? May we all have such Iman, and be guided by Almighty Allah to have the best of responses during our periods of difficulty.
We have to be patient, and keep out hopes, desires and efforts towards coming closer to Almighty Allah, and to remain as far as possible in a state of taqwa and ihsan.
.. and insha'Allah, we will be with the one whom we love, and who truly loves us when we our time as strangers in this world comes to an end, for truly, we do not belong here at all.
