Kahlil Gibran’s Poem On Marriage

My cousin has been visiting us for the last couple of weeks. She was raised in England and has a beautiful English accent. We have been experimenting lately in my humble studio and after hearing her recite some poetry I was inspired to record the poem by Khalil Gibran on the theme of marriage and felt that today would be the most appropriate day to share it. I have added a spontaneous piano composition that I composed for my sister’s recent wedding. I hope you enjoy it!

You can listen to the piece below and download it here.  The beautiful design below is by Anat Bar Shalom.

  1. Beautifully complement each other. Specially wonderful as it was spontaneous. So eloquently read, you delicately gave this poem of Khalil Gibran’s on Love the gentleness and powerfulness it so rightly deserved. Happy Valentine’s day to you both! With all our love from Habibi’s in England XX

  4. Thank you all for your loving comments.

  5. Beautiful! Thanks to you and dearest Arzhia!

  6. Can I please please have a copy of this? it is very beautiful and profound. Are u selling it on itunes?

  7. Hi Sheba, I don’t think these can be sold as Khalil Gibran’s writings are copyrighted. I’ll have a look into it…
