NAYYAR SHABBIR AHMAD

Rookie (1950 / Lahore, Pakistan)

Midstream


You’ve walked into my life
midstream
Thank you

But don’t ask me
how much luggage
i’m carrying

Its size
colour
or texture

Just be there
for me

Like I’ll always be there
for you

I’ve walked into your life
midstream
I don’t want to know
how much luggage
you’re carrying

Not, it’s size
not its colour
not it’s texture

I just want us
to be there
for each other
forever
and ever

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
