The Wait



I shall wait for you………

Just like a stream waits………
Meandering its way through high and low…….
Waiting to meet the vast ocean
And become one with that enormous wealth of treasures…
Of pearls…of corals…and life -known-unknown.…….
And oh! What stops it from waiting!!!!
Never can it be tied!!


Just like the ocean waits….
To turn to vapour
And rise above itself….
Higher and higher…up above all….
And become the cloud….…
Like a roof to all of God’s creations…
Rich or poor…
Black or white…


Just like the cloud waits…
Laden with life…
To pour down…
And seep into the very pores of the ground…
And bring forth life….
A life from a life…


Just like a seed waits ….
Drenched by the rain……
To break its fetters…
And expand free….
Growing above…
Into a bud….
Ready to bloom
Just in a while…


Just like a bud waits…..
For the sun to rise..
And his light to shine..
That it may bloom…
And sing with the wind….
And dance with the bees…
And celebrate with delight


Just like the sun waits….
For the night to come……
And soothe its heat…
Its parching throat…
Its flaming lips…
That it may know ..
What coolness is like….


Just like the night waits….
For the stars to shine…
Tear apart her darkness…
By their dazzling light…
That it may turn into a beautiful vision,
For those with sight….


Just like the stars wait….
For the learners’ gaze…
Searching out for them,
Studying their movements with time….
Basing their lives on their brightness ….
As if they were
An intervention divine.


And just like the learners wait…
For the streams to flow by….
Bearing waters filled with wisdom,
Lessons and rhymes………
To quench the thirsts
Of their throat, soul and mind….


And so…. Know it….
That I shall wait….
Through all that happens…
As long as I’m alive….

thanks suvaiba :) Tc too :)

thanks chintan :) i love Urdu too . . . But i aint good at languages, esp Urdu . . Though, recently i have started writing in my mother tongue (supposed to be) . . And well i only have the Roman script supported in my lap . . So, if at all i write, you'd definitely be able to read it. :)
if you click on the label poems you'd see a 'Khamoshi' and 'Aye Khuda' . . . Those are my only two attempts at writing Urdu poems. :p sorry . . Am on my cel rite now so not able to link. :) Tc.

You're good at Poetry -

-
Waiting for someone -
But No one waited for me at all -

Locked in Silence -
And They Saw It all -

I'm dying from this Inner Fight -
As I burn like the sun - Inside -


Keep Writing-
