Samra Haq


'A STARRY NIGHT'


It was a night time
And I was sitting in my garden

I saw so many stars saying to everyone
'I beg your pardon'

There was full moonlight
Showing intrinsic beauty on the sky, sight by sight

Up above the world so high
Stars twinkled, like a diamond in the sky

Flashing back my child hood days
Building sand castles in my own ways

Playing out my dreams, I was trying to define
Touching the surface with my hand

And with fingers of love and affection
Breeze has set in, and washed away the sand

Air was gentle, cool and calm
Showing its beauty and all the charm

I was imagining about my own place
Where is your own special space?


As you sit out, and just be ‘you'
A place where your being relaxes and get free

Searching in one's mind, a better place
Where you can see, your own special space

In reflections of love and quietness, you'll find
So many beautiful thoughts come to your mind

Reflections of yourself in cute childhood
You know in appropriate ways, what was right

And where you joyfully played
In the early hours of moonlight

Threatening clouds were in huge forms
As if they had darkened the vast skies

And the wonder of childhood
There was innocence, and it dies

Bring it back, and where are you?
It's my dream, and it may come true

Love has lightened up my soul
Transforming my body and my heart

Don't look for yourself, in dark places
See your light as 'Hope' and as 'A Star'

It was a night time
And I was sitting in my garden

I saw so many stars saying to everyone
'I beg your pardon'

Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
