Treasure Island

Abdul Wahab

What i need to be happy

You can neither give me nor can I take
The responsibility which love binds
As I love my freedom
And you hanker to roam free
It is better to be remain as friends
And very respectful with each other
Without any expectation or demand
But very careful with sentiments
Each others wishes and need
Do not take mine too
Though I do not know whether it is true or not
But I surely know it will suck your blood
I wish not to be of any one
Nor I wish to have some one
Let me lay happy
Without tease without taunt
Give me my rights
Do not obstruct my path
These would be enough for my life
Do not talk about love
You can neither give nor can I take
I expect you to judge me on merit
And I promise I will never be biased

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
