You Are My Light (Wrote As A Comment On Abhilasha Bhatt's Poem Tum Ho Meri Roshni) - Poem by Akhtar Jawad

When love came suddenly as beams of light,
the dark room of heart sometimes became a sun,
sometimes it became a moon,
I became restless as a sea in tide,
life and death both got a meaning,
life my beloved and death my bride,
what a magic is love!
At the moment my beloved is into my arms,
but I am fully prepared for my bride's soothing charms,
I assure you my bride after I kiss you,
I shall smile with peace, an immortal smile,
but as long as my beloved is with me,
I am now moderate,
My life a delight,
no more a sun so bright,
no more a moon raising the tides,
In love I am twinkling like a star,
the journey that started at dusk,
making me an evening star,
I know will end at the dawn,
I shall see my end as a morning star.

    A simply wonderful poem of love. I am sure Abhilasha must have loved this little one :) A fine gift to a poet from another poet. Thank you Akhtar sahab. (Report) Reply
