Love Is My Religion And Lover My Name - Poem by Akhtar Jawad
O God! What you gave to me I'm giving same to others.
and that's why I love you.
You were inclined to give me anything I ask,
being shy of my sins I couldn't say I want you.
With my heart's wish intact in my heart I am roaming in the world,
this is something else everywhere I look for you.
O limitless! Your length and breadth and weight,
I am trying to measure in human made measurements.
Hoping a glimpse your view sometimes somewhere,
when I get an open window I peep inside.
You are confused in sects, I have been simplified,
I have lost my existence don't look for me.
Love is my religion and lover my name,
Wish to listen Him, "I know you."
