Salty Pearls


Salty pearls, produced in vain,
Falls down like a heavy rain,
They run down through my cheeks,
I remain silent but my eyes speak!

Bearing everything alone,
And walking a path unknown,
I drink the pearls of my eyes,
Every night, as my heart cries!

The One Who Pulled Me Out Of My Darkness!

Once there was a time,
A time so sad and lonely,
When I was drowning in an ocean,
Filled with my tears only!

Wanted to abandon this world,
And sleep forever in a grave,
But God blessed me with you,
And I was saved!

I learnt from you the meaning of life,
The perspective of being positive,
Your care and concern for me,
Is surely effective!

You’ve done so much for me,
How can I ever thank you,
You were always there in my good days,
And on my sorrows, you cried too!

I was waiting for a friend like you,
Who would save me from my emptiness,
I am really grateful to you,
For you pulled me out of my darkness!

Death isn’t what we think,
It can destroy things within a blink,
It brings only anguish and tears,
It leaves people to suffer for years!

People die but leave a scar behind,
A wound so deep and unkind,
They must be resting in peace,
But they leave us crying on our knees!

Tears flow forever,
Things never get better,
Pain and sorrows grow everyday,
Some bruises don’t heal, they stay!

This deadly chain of demise,
Will continue to numb our eyes,
It’ll pass on to you and me,
Life doesn’t come with guarantee!

A Mother’s Letter To Her Daughter

Dear daughter, the day you were born,
Brought joy to me, I no longer mourned,
You came and fulfilled my life,
You’re the reason, I never strife!

I held you high up in my arms,
Then you’d laugh with all your charms,
You’d smile brightly with teeth, only two,
And I’d kiss you, times many, not few!

When it was your first day at school,
You thought people there were cruel,
So right beside you, I sat,
And comforted you from the lady, old fat!

Whenever you got hurt,
It too left a scar on my heart,
You cried and came to mummy,
And hugged me on my tummy,

The days are full of glee,
But you’re growing so quickly,
And I remembered the nightmare of my life,
That daughters will depart and become someone’s wife!

We spent so many years together,
You shared your secrets and pleasures,
But now the day is near,
To bid you goodbye, my dear!

You came in my life as a blessing,
And now it’s the day of your wedding,
Today I’m shining like a bright star,
But not tomorrow ’cause you’ll be far!

Daughters are the life of a family,
They’re so delicate, so lovely,
God made daughters so precious,
I wish the journey was endless!

But it can’t be like that,
You’ll have to go to a new flat,
One day, you’ll understand a mother’s pain,
As a daughter will be born again!

The Insomniac!

He works all day,
He keeps himself busy,
But still during night,
He never feels dizzy!

During the working hours,
He experiences many anguishes,
But no matter how sad he be,
At night his pain vanishes!

The Sun doesn’t bring joy to him,
He feels like a lonely bird,
He loves his company at night,
When nothing can be heard!

His life after midnight,
Brings joy and happiness to him,
The moments spent with himself,
Makes him happy, hides his grim!

His days are gloomy,
But happy are his nights,
He lies awake in his room,
Aah! He feels so bright!

I Know He Will


It was life’s coincidence?
Or just a step, wrong?
Things sure seem painful!
But this won’t last long!

Everything happens for a reason,
I believe it now!
Though I’m broken and tired,
I’ll live with this somehow!

I’m happy or sad?
Even I don’t know!
One day things will get better,
A beautiful path, God will show!

I try to smile but its difficult,
It’s not so easy as it seems,
But this is the cold truth,
Broken are my dreams!

Not everything we get in life,
Some dreams never fulfill,
But I know that happiness,
He has shown me, and He further will !

The Little Martyred Hearts

This is a tribute to all the innocent brave little students, who lost their lives in the Peshawar Attack (16 December,2014)

So curious were these little gems,
They were the Nation’s stem,
The last time, their mothers kissed them,
Because some didn’t return from the mayhem.

To fulfill their sparkling dreams,
School went those little streams,
But we heard their scary screams,
And saw red bloodstreams.

The books looked all red,
Everyone thought ink has spread,
But seeing the bodies dead,
We knew it was blood instead.

Though small but they were strong,
Suffer could they for how long?
Education, to them it belongs!
Were they doing something wrong?

How could you even think of doing it?
Those innocent souls,how could you hit?
Those bright dreams, how could you slit?
Don’t you have feelings? Not little bit?

You were a coward, they were brave,
Like soldiers, did they behave,
For us, their lives they gave,
“Repent!” For one day you’ll be enslaved!

For the students, we all pray,
Happiness they may see through their way,
We’ll never forget this agonizing day,
For the sad memories will always stay.
