Once In A While - Poem by Amjad Islam Amjad

Once in a while,
During these sultry nights,
When all voices seem
To have fallen asleep,
In the somewhat bruised
Silence of half-sleep
A wonderful dream awakes;
I see
That across the veil of dust
Which hangs between us
You too are all alone
And wide awake.

[Translated by Muhammad Salim-ur-Rehman]
