Serendipity - Poem by Sadiqullah Khan

Something ended happily.
Some beginning was strange
this was all serendipity.
It was all hope
is life prime?
Or is what we do?
On a very cold evening
we celebrated.
Someone's birthday,
with homemade cake and pizza.
Some small luggage
a camel could carry with ease.
The next discovery is nothing less,
Than I need to lodge in.
Such hard times come not always,
such imaginations rarely take wings.
I could feel your hands slip from me,
like melting walls of houses
staring at each other,
and towards the empty street.
I need to water some more plants.
I need to catch the sunshine again.
I need to defeat the time
At least for the time being,
There are some more moments,
that I want to live.
