What’s The Sunrise! - Poem by Aftab Alam

I always think, whether you think or not
I don’t know, my dear brother
At gloomy night when nothing is seen
Only eyes of the heaven sparkling clean
But at dawn,
I find tears on the face of night,
Why night weeps
What grief it keeps
Or is it tears of loving soul?
I always think
Sometimes blink
I question to self
With a yelp

Is it tears of the night?
Or pearls of the day
Thought, it is,
But different, want to say
Pain gives more enjoyment
Than the happiness
If there is no darkness
What’s the sunrise!

    No dogma without doubt
    neither light with nor dark of night
    in the quest of the heart
    to the truth/bright

    One cannot know relief without having pain. Day has meaning because of night. There is always a coexistence of the opposites. Beautifully put in the poem. Thank you. (Report) Reply
