Aftab Alam Poems

From the grief ocean, I steal, a drop of happiness,
For every autumn, I get a lovely beautiful spring,
For human youth; the festive, to dance and sing,
We nature, within nature; keepeth blissful fitness,

Once, I danced;
Under the cloudless canopy,
With a dream of yours,
What a joyous moment it was!

Bird was flying lavishly, un-cared, unheard
Over the dale, over the field; with no shield
Enjoying the freedom, Singing, dreaming,
Thinking: “Ah! So beautiful is the dream of a bird”

Delicate you are,
Fragile-agile roses!
Thou art Boldness;
Angels on earth you must be.

Is it tears of the night?
Or pearls of the day!
Is it woes of the star?
Or dancing feathers gay!

What life! For I know, it's a magical bag
I can see uneyed, the bag with its tag
Always empty, it has a gigantic desire
What a folly with us? Why bathed in pyre!

When all birds flew back to nest, for rest,
Sinking sun into west when floated very fast
Heavy hands and hazy mind when lost its zest,
Then I am quite sure, he is losing vigor bast,

Jesus came, Jesus came, Jesus came for us
Jerusalem is shining bright, Jesus came for us

On the roof before the dusk, Jesus came to us
Tears roll, bare sole, song of praise, rush n rush

Awake, awake, O my torn fate! Be wise
Why do you fall? Can't you rise?
Hurry up! before the body is buried deep,
Keep thy change that ye must keep.

How fast thou move with the sound, ye brook, I find;
No boat, no dive, yet, you are so beautiful, I drank,
Thy sight, a throat full opiate; I went to swoon,
A nature's painting! Lovely Curios; I will be back soon,

I was nowhere; neither was any trace of mine,
In fact, in the lap of death, enjoying life's pine,
I never fled but throughout the life, I bleed,
Still, enough blood is left, for peace to plead.

What nature!
Is it more beautiful than the human senses?
What nature!
Beyond the imagination of human mind,

Better there I was at the old home
With the old stupid palsied gnome
Why broke the mug, Papa?
Answer me, you crooked brigand.

An awkward dream, I dreamt
We all had a beautiful tail
That revealed the truth
It amazed and marveled I

My country is burning
There is flame of hatred
On the stove of faith
Chef frying the trust

He wilt to live,
Never drunk,
Never Smoke,
Yet died he,

O the bell of time,
I love thy chime,
For if ears power die

For a little borne, when sucks the nectar
That comes from the Garden of Eden (heaven)
Into the mothers bosom and lay on lap altar.
Utters 'MOM' the most beautiful word', proven.

The Best Poem Of Aftab Alam

A Drop Of Happiness

From the grief ocean, I steal, a drop of happiness,
For every autumn, I get a lovely beautiful spring,
For human youth; the festive, to dance and sing,
We nature, within nature; keepeth blissful fitness,

When spring comes, nature with its beauty; greet,
Flower with hue sways and butterflies do flip flop,
Calm breeze's sensational blush; a birth of hope,
Seasons love, mingles with whole color, they meet.

Know, a place in mind, away from the physical spring,
Hatching spring and brooding youth forever, a bliss,
Grief of the world; dry petals, away from hate, I kiss,
From the grief ocean, a drop of happiness, they bring.

There will not be a spring without autumn; no taste,
If no sorrow, what taste happiness will provide, say?
If no youth, why then heart will throb; gaily and gay?
Autumn prepares to decorate the heart with haste..

@Dear Aghaz aftab, I am glad to see you've visited your late father's page on this site. He was a good poet, used to leave inspiring comments on other poets' poems. He was presumably a good man too. May Allah SWT forgive him and grant him Jannah!

Aftab Alam Quotes

Greatest victory which we desire, is to defeat truth and Lo! Truth is undefeated

Never expect anything, ye will never be demoralized

Walk towards the light, put it on your head and then crush your shadow that hides under your feet

Loving own country is to love peace

Envy-Thy art blindness

Will power defeats all powers

Hatred is internal calamity that destroys the keeper

One can't measure the life with its bitterness but with it's sweetness and sweetness is what one must find in Jesus Words

Heaven always shower His mercy on us and we return it with our cruelty

Our thought is our big enemy, guided by ego that walks on evil path

Hopeless are those who suffers the curse of heaven-so be hopeful

we know the art of success; never forget

Till there is the Sun, shall not dew parish

Enticing hope is like lighting candle in the dark room
