Syed Ahmed Shah Poems

Best Poem of Syed Ahmed Shah

Funerals Are For The Living

If you are the social type
And enjoy meeting people,
Never miss a funeral in the graveyard;
Funerals are great occasions
To meet living people
In a peaceful surrounding…

I always had a lingering suspicion that
Funerals are actually
Meant for the living…

Graveyards provide great ambience
And throw in a surprise or two...
‘A fifty year old tomb of a five year old girl ‘

The dead never seem to age
Only the memory does…
What about that gentleman
Who you thought died long ago
Standing right next to you during the prayer
...

My Funeral

City square
Midday
Someone stabs me on my back
And loses himself in the crowd...

The lanes clog with mourners
A weeping city bids me farewell...

The Imam leads the prayer and
Raises his gloved hands to the sky...

The Hand that destroyed me
Now raised to bless my soul...
