Like Treasures - Poem by Sadiqullah Khan

I bore the heaviness of the days
Those happened to the nights before
To come like horses from the wild
The fortress of hope dims like glimmer
Rapid wind has the darkness brought
Underneath I shall imagine roses
The ultimate defeat to the life was death
So delicate descended just live the feelings
O eternal separation not prey for the eyes
If opened the lament would drown the earth
From amongst the loves from this world
Heavenly bodies may take over
Never shall be forgotten this sweetness
One last evening or a day earlier
In the discourses therefore
I wrote I know with absolute certitude
The destiny is the end of me
Bring the pot and flow over the brim
My cup has this time collected the sadness
For ages I have been keeping like treasures
