Ms. Rahma Riad: What a beautiful song called “El Kawkab” [Planet]!

Bambi would like to thank her sister Roula for making her discover this talented Iraqi singer called Rahma Riad. From the English translation fully shown below (https://bit.ly/3vWotf1), you can learn that her song is about love, precisely about longing to live on another planet… The song starts with these beautiful lyrics: “Let’s be you and I, like stars and clouds in the sky, we travel to the top and never return back. We abandon this planet and its darkness and it continues like this: ” We spend it with love and longing. We teach those people the meaning of love. We never mention parting, and we colour this world in happiness pink. The life we live without love doesn’t deserve to be lived“.

This being said, Ms. Riad’s first name is Rahma. It means “Mercy” in Arabic. May her song bring both mercy and love to our entire planet, which may have seemed at times like inhabited by humans with masks, not around their faces and noses to protect others, but around their hearts, blinding the latter to the point of being unable to love others.

On this serious note, Bambi cannot conclude this post without thinking of a deep yet funny chat with her childhood friend Hala who, about a year ago, expressed a similar wish like in this song, for both of them, as a solution to get away from the world’s problems :).

Hope you will enjoy the song. Long live love!

Oui, vive l’amour… et merci encore Roula!

Planet

Let’s be you and I

Like stars and clouds in the sky

We travel to the top and never return back

We abandon this planet and its darkness

Alone we fly and soar

We put a little star in the sky

And we paint our love in air

We spend it with love and longing

We teach those people the meaning of love

We never mention parting

And we colour this world in happiness pink

The life we live without love

It doesn’t deserve to be lived

Let me tell you about my longing

To see what your love has done to me

The more time extend between us

I feel like it has just begun

Put your hand in mine until the day we die

You won’t lose and you know

You’re my magnificent dream

You’re the happiest coincidence in my life

You make me live the best days,

Make me forget all my sorrows,

Your name is the map of my life,

Your eyes are my address,

Without you, my life has no taste,

Empty and has no meaning“.
