If You Wish… 030 8 - 2k13 - Poem by saadat tahir

On occasion if I spare some time,
i may choose to chat...if you wish
it will not be the eternal rhyme

alas an sigh! Time flies so fast.
so many promises to mull to keep
world and life in scope so vast

I wish a day'd be extend to days
to wrap in it the bits and brats
to keep me steady on chosen ways

woods are lovely, dark, and deep
wish i could leisurely stroll
In shady corners shelter sleep

but I have much pledge to keep
surround me lil bundles squeal
I in books and tomes huddle heap

    The poem speaks of maddening routine of life when we feel being a cog in a huge machine. But it becomes sacred if we are keeping promises. Feelings are well-described with a pen dipped in sensitivity. (Report) Reply
