The Last Episode - Poem by Akhtar Jawad

I still remember the charming dawn,
When the shy moon behind a curtain,
Slept and exposed all her charms,
And the thirsty eyes without a refrain,
Through a semitransparent cover of clouds,
Took a pleasing shower from the fountain,
Chasing morning star on the Milky Ways,
Pleasure of love, no tears no pain,
A real dawn of life I can’t forget,
The dawn I wish if I could sustain!

The dawn was turned in a painful noon,
On every step a wound a blood stain,
Slipped down to the lips and to the cheeks,
The melting heart and the boiling brain,
Is life a fatigue imposed up on?
Who can tell, and who can explain?
But the moon sleeping in a cool bed room,
Hiding herself from the burning rain,
From the cruel sun and the heat strokes,
A kiss that showered as the pleasing rain!

At dusk standing alone, now on the roof,
Where is the moon, I am sad once again,
Can’t she come here for the final hug?
Could you relieve me of the deadly pain?
I am going to write the last episode,
I need you love for the lasting stain,
I see a unicorn with the lovely wings,
I’ll have to go leaving loss and gain,
I shall carry only your parting kiss,
A hope to meet somewhere once again!

    The dawn symbolic of our early life has been pleasant and blemishless. The period extending from youth to middle age is the noon time of man's life! It is not a cake walk, but one with pain and joy coming in turn.Often we experience the contrast between desire and fulfillment then. Now when we are stepping into old age which is the dusk, we still have some desires left behind before saying the final goodbye! Enjoyed this symbolic write! (Report) Reply

    people would not value their presence when they are around but when they are not around they would not value anything but them
    when eyes r there we won't understand the importance
