Do You Remember Poem by Matloob Bokhari

Do You Remember

Do you remember the night, we walked hand in hand?
Do you remember the sound of your rhythmic steps?
Do you remember the hearts filled with loving dreams?
Do you remember the midnight stars glistening and singing?
Do you remember the fragrance of sandal trees in the air?
Do you remember souls uplifted- walking upon moonbeams?
Do you remember souls wandering above star shine?
Do you remember jackals howling at mid night?
Star of stars, I remember millions of memories.
I remember your fluffy hair, rosy lips, your sparkling looks.
I remember your soft blushes; face quivering in the moon.
I remember your white arms round my waist; your sweet dimpling smile.
I remember your lily- white cheeks rouged by kisses.
I remember your solace embrace under odorous tree.
I remember your words sweeter than heavenly music.
I remember the silent language of love muted all the music.
I remember your gazing in the air; dragging steps; Ah, depart.
I remember your sullen cares; greed of your father.
I remember the stormy night; your marriage with gold.
I remember your sighs, weeping with sea-eyes.
I remember your lonely journey through sadness.
I remember the wan depression had dimmed your radiance.
I remember your suffering from tuberculosis.
I remember your counting days to meet your Creator.
I am on your grave with withered flowers in my hand.
My life is a vale of tears, full of thorns of sorrows.
You are in grave, but still smile in my dreams.
You are my first thought in sunrise, last in sunset.
In realm of rest is written pearly white on your red coffin:
'No maiden shall ever be sold for money. O! My dear, very dear father.'
