Nafees Nazm (Pure Verse)
Don’t call out to me so much that I wear wings to fly
Don’t adorn your world so much that I loose myself
I am a mere shadow lying forgotten in the sand
Like the pandiculation of a tired traveller am I
Sit down beside me to hear once all that is in my heart
Will reveal all those wounds inflicted by Time upon me
How much have I to walk every day and how much far
I roam restless knowing not what is to be my destination
Why do you talk to me of cities unseen ?
When I am not in there, why does it seem a city to you?
Why do you ask the sea, the address of the shores?
With a lot of effort my friends I have lost myself
Since the time you met me, I have forgotten God
I keep on searching for Him now in your pure eyes
