A Personality Who Gave My Life A Nice Turn - Poem by Shuaib Saifi
I kept wandering for years in my youth,
Here and there for a sweet home and small,
Gone east, west, north and even south;
No direction could fulfill my wish at all.
I’d an impatience, grief and broken-heart,
Wanted not even to return the home I left
Forever, as for me it’d no calm, no comfort;
That begun to treat as if I'd made some big theft.
In this disaster with a personality I met,
Confidence on face, gentleness in his eyes;
Body not but the thoughts were so great,
He was looking perfectly gentle and wise.
He looked into my mind heart for a while,
Had some arduous words before me; -
As I made them easy, he beautifully did smile,
And said “for a sweet home you’re worthy”.
Perhaps that was my life’s brightest moment,
I found the thing I’d been searching for years;
That personality punished the woe, the complaint,
That caused to flow my many bitter tears.
For a moment I felt myself flying in the sky
Far away from this earth, where a deep moan
My soul used to take and with woe to cry,
Where none identified me but that great one.
Now I gladly live my life in such a home,
Where are joy, peace and freshness all around,
I like to spend the time in it rather than to roam
On the streets; as a sweet home I have found.
I am so indebted to my Lord Who’s almighty,
Who did bless me such a peaceful home;
And to that worthy and great personality,
Who caused this pleasure in my life to come.
Dedicated To Rohit Jessel Tinku, My Manager!
