It's Really Great To See You Around! - Poem by Shahzia Batool

When jolly birds fly in the air
and breeze plays with wanton hair
when dreams meet with eyes' glare
and every place has an air of fair

in my mind you can be found
my eyes want to see you around.

when eve approaches by and by
when stars intend to shine on the sky
when carefree aanchals freely enjoy
on wings of air i don't know why?

i feel myself severely bound
in this wish to see you around.

when the moon shines and looks kind
and sweeps away the worries from the mind
when it encounters the blows of wind
trees look smiling because they find

the beauteous weather all around
and then i want to see you around.

it may be fine or may be bad
whether birds sing or sit so sad
everyone feels grim or glad
whether fun of weather makes one mad

it's always great to see you around
it's really great to see you around

    Friends make the good times so much better, and help us through the sad times.
    Very original poem, I liked the refrain which reinforces the thought over and over.

    a poem must be filled with fly of soul to words
    When jolly birds fly in the air
    and breeze plays with wanton hair
    when dreams meet with eyes' glare
    and every place has an air of fair

    Elements of nature and romantic emotions have been blended in a splendid form, nucleus of all universe is only one thing that is the sentiment of love which the poetess wants to realize, else her whole life and entire structure of the universe is ineffective. The stars, the moon and the breeze etc. are meaningful if the hearts brim with the most precious item: Love. Lucid language with sooth cadence.
