Riffat Samad Poems
All day long roaming around Sometimes I stand before the mirror, See my own image looks at me, Yet I'm puzzled not to find my `self' there.
Sometimes I fly Over the sea bed, Over the mountains, Even over the endless sky.
The world is truth just like the truth is, The life is truth and obedient to true life, Suddenly the fire of truth purifies the world. Falsity grabbed the earth,
Once you have come to that wrong person And have not tell him what you want, In your heart the light you have turned on Have not enlightened the heart of that wrong person.
I see a beggar begging In the bus stop everyday, I see a boy In the field, playing,
Two roads have gone To the same direction: One is full of stone With two parallel bars of iron
I can give thou pain in return for pain, Let all the love be spoiled in vain. If there is any thing called heart, my dear, Let it be pierced with the pain like spear.
Still I Feel...
Darling, thou are not exist in our world now But still in some nights I feel... (And I) think with surprise that Thou are still exist in our memory.
Spring Evening Chant
Let the breeze blow, Let the river flow, In the spring evening Let the moon come slow.
Sometimes I fly
Over the sea bed,
Over the mountains,
Even over the endless sky.
My season is summer,
Bed is autumn's cloud,
In spring I'll sing
After defeat the winter.
My time is sun light,
My space is full of wind;
Evening star reminds me home
For a dreamy night.
