Renewal Of Pledge - Poem by Wali Jamali

You may have memories
Of our last meeting at River Indus.
standing on the west bank,
I held your hand
And kissed it softly.

You asked, ' how deep is your love? '
I said, ' Not deepr than this sacred river! '
You shouted, ' how this could be? '
I nodded, ' yes, it's true.'

I have renewed
My pledge of love with it.
You know, it was there,
Much before you.

    So you can never love me the way you love your brother Tom? ? Only thing that I remember was standing by Floss while he held my hand and everything before that is dark to me! ! ! [Mill on the Floss]

    Murky manna of Sindhu
    maligned yet lusted after

    Tnnx Ms Jamali

    Ouch! That is something a girl in love doesn't want to hear.
    I get the spiritual beauty of the poem though.
