Butterflies - Poem by Gulam Abbas Hashmi

They say that when you fall in love
This world and also sky above
Get going as have got the wings
And butterflies in your belly swings
Winds and rains have come and gone
A touch of butterfly, I dream alone
I leap upon a leaping heart
That beats beneath my chest aghast
O! Flower, how can I loose the thought?
Thy swift trespass, my path was lost
When eyes behold that lovely sight
Your face covered in starry night
Your hands quivered on touch of mine
A mystery was your eyes so bright.
A sore has made its home in me
For when again I’ll come to see?
The splendid view when reason’s died.
