A Child Cannot Become A Man - Poem by Salim R Javed

Who will be sad for the lonely heart?
Cried day and night alone.
Who will be sad for the broken heart?
Whose heart is not his own.

Who will be sad for the broken heart?
Which cannot beat and go to sleep.
Who will be sad for broken heart?
Which never shown his weep.

Who will be sad for the broken heart?
When he burnt on the sand,
Who will be sad for the broken heart?
The boy inside the man.

Who will be sad for the broken heart?
Who knows well hurt and pain,
Who will be sad for the broken heart?
He died again and again.

Who will be sad for the broken heart?
A perfect love he tried to be,
Who will be sad for the broken heart?
Who cries inside of me.

Who will be sad for the broken Heart?
That lies within the chest,
Who will be sad for the broken heart?
Which now never feel the rest.

Who will now cry for the broken Heart?
A question arise within me,
Who will now cry for the broken heart?
Who cried day and night just for thee.....
