It’s Your Birthday - Poem by Dr Kamran Haider Bukhari

Today
Is your Birthday
But it’s not the only day
You were born
You
Who were nothing
Just a month back
Have left infinite marks
Of your pure love
Divine friendship
And tender words
On my tarnished body
Crystallized heart
And tormented soul
That whosoever
Looks, sinks or mingles
My body, heart or soul
Exclaims and asks
What marks you have got here dude
I can only smile and say
These are my Birthmarks

Dec 01,2008


P.S. To Anjali Sinha, a very good friend today; whom I met on PH.

What is a friend? A single soul dwelling in two bodies.
~Aristotle

    I just adore this poem. What a wonderful philosophy of friendship this is. My Grandmother once told me 'the way to have a friend is to be one'. But I like your extension to my Grandmother's wise words! Karin Anderson (Report) Reply
