When I Went Restless And Pale - Poem by Abdul Wahab

Once I had a lovely garden
But the seeds were of lack
So I forgot to express gratitude
Though the trees grew big and tall
But did not bear any flower and fruit

I complained and had grumblings
And trees shed their leaves
Completely, bare they became
And I went restless and pale

In despair I gave up
And nothing more I expected
But at my surprise one day I saw
In plenty the trees bore flowers and fruits

    Hope knocks doors
    when doubt in
    Vast hold of the hearts/ bright (Report) Reply
