My Grandchild - Poem by Akhtar Jawad

I see you scattered everywhere,
too far, too near, here and there.
Can't You come to me in person?
Are you behind the grills of a prison?
If so, who imprisoned the dove?
Still I see the light of your love!
Could You extend your arms to me!
Could you expose your charms to me!
I see the moon but I can't kiss it,
I love it's light and I can't miss it,
I need the moon with its forehead milky,
I need the clouds with the hairs so silky,
can't You send the stars to teach the art,
the eyes request to a poetic heart,
they want to twinkle in a moonlit night,
dreaming to resemble the Venus so bright.
Could I pray to see You real in my arms!
Could I really kiss your forehead's charms!
Hello! I heard a sweet lovely voice,
How I'm looking in a dress of my choice?
You came as a child to be truly admired,
I got everything whatever I desired!
How do You listen to my undue prayer!
Why are You quick and prompt to a sinner!

    I see you scattered everywhere,
    too far, too near, here and there...From starting lines this poem gives interesting thrill to understand about grandchild and affectionate grandfather like you. Again this is very philosophical regarding God and his universal creation. Very beautiful composition shared really.10

    I got everything whatever I desired!
    It is the extent of our faith in the Supreme being that makes us accept all His gifts - big or small - with complete humility and gratitude. The poem bears ample proof of that submission. Thanks, Sir.
