Treasure Island

Marria Attar


..I wiSh..


I wish I could do everything right
I wish I were this perfect person
I wish I were whole and ideal
I wish that I’d live life with no cries
I wish I could hear the birds sing as they fly
I wish life was just a half-an-hour game
I wish I were a person who is never to blame
I wish life was full of happiness with nothing to hinder the laughs
I wish life was just flawless and a single path
I wish I could sleep at night with no worries to overwhelm me
I wish people would for once stop hostility and unite
I wish everything could be solved without a brutal fight
I wish the road to success and infinite happiness was never that far
I wish the world was perfect as I wish I were…

    Hazaroon khawaishain aisee (millions of wishes are those)
    keh har khawaish e dam nikle (that each wish takes my breath away)
    bohat nikley merey armaan, lekin (many wishes did fulfilled, but)
    phir bhi kam nikley (still they were few) : Mirza Ghalib
    may be I've done some mistakes in the translation please do forgive me for that, while reading your poem few verses of Mirza Ghalib came in my mind which I wanted to share with you and appologise for that....may God fulfill all your wishes and make this world a beautiful place..ameen
    thanks

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
