Sayeed Abubakar Quotes

  • ''There is no Jesus more who will absorb
    All the sins into his cross;
    There is no Gautama more who will play
    Day and night the flute of wisdom
    Sitting under the shade of the Bodhi Tree;
    There is no Krishna more who will pour down
    The cloud of love into Radha's thirsty eyes;
    There is no Mohammad more who will rush
    To save you from the clutch of hungry Fire.

    O Man, O Horse, O Bull,
    Remember, there is no prophet more;
    Remember, except a love-lorn poet,
    There is no savior more.''

    opened his fearful eyes in the war-trodden world,
    and asked in a depressed voice, 'Where have I come? '

    full of corpses and heart-rending bloods

Best Poem of Sayeed Abubakar

Forget Me Not

Forget me not,
Forget not me.
Forget day hot,
Keep night with thee.

I will touch you
In thought, in dream.
My love soft dew,
Summer's ice-cream.

Forget me not,
I won't too you.
You my sweet thought
Calm, green, soft, new.

Men Are My Brothers

Those who are saints, monks or dervishes can live alone;
Leaving men, dwelling in Heaven is not a poet's work.
May be, innumerable miscreants are among the flow of men;
Still I float on that flow touching these men.

Men are my brothers in all countries, religions and languages
And women my sisters. This small planet of men
Are replete with sin and virtue, sorrow and happiness, frustration and hope.
Loyalty and revolt whirl again and again round these men.
