A poem by Naheed Akhtar

O’ thee
The soul of my body!
I ain’t gonna empty
The heart that carries
Love for thee
No matter how long
Thou ignore me

Until the body sinks
And inner forces give up
Repudiating to serve
The breaths
That drag the form
And maintain
Relationship between

Until the body reaches
The home
Under the bosom of Earth
And the body
Lays in mirth
For the attainment
Of still rejoicing the love it ever loved
