A Promise - Poem by Akhtar Jawad
Time of parting is approaching, it's close,
eyes ready to snap for the heart your pose,
that's all I need, you have turned your face!
Come back sweetheart you know your place,
I know your hairs are silk and shining,
but the eyes with a red and wink lining!
what are you hiding are these your tears?
I don't understand your doubts and fears!
Turn, let me write a promise on your lips,
in the new world too, you'll have my sips,
a creeper of grapes, you'll drink its wine,
I am only for you and you are mine!
(Promise of a dying spouse)
