Shiv Kumar Batalvi

(23 July 1936 - 7 May 1973 / Punjab / British India)

The Request

The sun that you stole
Was mine.
The house that you threw into darkness,
Was mine.

The sunshine that smiles in your home, is mine.
My life is bleak without it,
The odor of my grief is heavy on it,
It was mine yesterday and is mine today.
