***the Parting Verse - Poem by Sadiqullah Khan

The severity of my love to gauge
I counted your kisses on the face of other
Like the one lost in the mist of morning
To find the door of house by the color it carries

The hope that night shall bring with the storm
Hopes of prayers for my love when enough
O separation be not the voices unpleasant
From the silence make sweet the presence gentle

Spread the darkness of your hair on my face
Let my sleep on your arm be a dream in heaven
Talk not of others in the harmony of love
My love has the rhythm of the beats of your heart

The living soul has the last struggle though
I counted the knots of remorse on your scarf
Open to reveal the truths like holy script
My love that has spoken to you in immense

On the silk of your hair up the slanted shoulder
Much a time that my heart has lamented
From the lips that has the redness of cherries
Speak the parting verse below the wet of glance

Homer it is said has spoken of gods
Not of gods but of your love have I sung
Who shall then lift me up to the long haze
Tear my heart to see inscribed your name

    wow Sadiq yours has to be the best
    see I tried to write something complementing yours
    for yours surely a tenner from me
    Anjali

    BE WITH ME

    As I awoke one morning,
    a bright summers day
    amidst glimmer of sunshine
    peeped underline
    the windows
    opening my driveway.
    The scent in the air brings
    The roses in full swing
    Carried within it wings
    your unspoken word’s zing.
    Come to my heart and be with me

    On the silk of my hair,
    A fragrance left there
    Like the musk of the deer
    In heat when your near
    Stands implanted
    Knitted and sewed
    in strands of gold
    Thy name,
    etched with blood of my soul
    Then come to my heart and be with me

    Can I speak of parting verses?
    Then ask, as much, of me to do
    Words don’t part, but my lips rehearse
    Sealed with kisses
    From your cherried lips dismisses
    No winters last forever
    No storms blow forever
    Then I revel in the rhythm of the
    Beats of your heart.
    O come then, come to my heart and be with me

    Tore indeed the veil of your heart
    to see, my name inscribed in art
    Then why do you start
    Counting my kisses
    on the face of another’s fine chart?
    Is it just to see me
    reeling with sadness
    revealing truths like holy scripts madness.
    then silence makes sweet the presence depart.
    O just come to my heart and be with me
