Lost Somewhere - Poem by Akhtar Jawad

With a picture in my hand,
I am looking for a youth,
insane in love,
deaf and dumb,
lost somewhere,
in a fairy's garden,
while running madly,
on a narrow pavement,
with rows of roses,
each sides of the pavement,
where wind, too, is insane,
where flowers are excited
and dance wildly,
where birds are singing,
on the wind's guitar,
making colors ecstatic,
and aroma anesthetic,
tragedy with the youth
he is not a blind,
can watch and feel
and love beauty.
Last time he was seen,
while kissing a rose.
If anyone gets
the victim of love,
please, bring back him,
to his sweet beloved,
sitting close to a fountain,
with tears in her eyes,
and regrets in her heart.

    How different you look Akhtarji..... but as a young boy you don't look a naughty, restless one. There is a look of innocence. I don't see any wild dreams in those eyes. The face in the picture, I feel is that of a very obedient boy.... a darling of his parents! More than the poem, I love the picture! (Report) Reply

    The picture was taken when I was not lost, the boy you see was lost for ever and could not be seen anywhere.

    It is amazing how quickly youth seems to pass. To see the young of today waste theirs is sad. (Report) Reply
