(14 APRIL / SAHIWAL)

I will be back soon


A letter from you
I get just now
Wish me come back
But tell me how?
In reply I say
Gloomy are my nights
And dreadful day
I too feel
Like fish out of water
But am to kneel
If I return
Think a little bit
Who will earn
The eyes that wait
Of our siblings
Fixed upon the gate
Nothing has I
Except your love
But can not buy
Livelihood I earn
My family for
I too yearn
I’ll be back home
After some time
Then shall we roam

Wait until then
I pile up a coffer
And return when

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
