Life is rushing by…

As it is rushing by..
The days and nights seem so short,
The precious moments ,I am losing,
As we two are living apart.
Breaths seem to be just a counted few,
And then I will wait for us to unite,
Begin our life once again, anew.
But,wait !I have to live a lot more..
To fulfill the dreams,we’ve cherished,
To love,be loved,to deliver and be pure.
The hopes have not yet diminished,
They’re still shining ever so bright.
How can I be ready for another journey!
I am not even ready to say goodnight?
For all have to come and all have to go.
Life’s lessons are eternal,
Not merely for a quick show..
So,I’ve to learn a lot and also,
unlearn a little,before I go.

    Ho Umr e Khizr bhi toh kaheingey b’ waqt e marg
    Ham kya rahey yahaan abhi aaye abhi chaley.
    ( Sheikh Ibrahim Zauq )

    “ Even if I were to enjoy the long life of Methuselah ( who is said to have lived over a thousand years ) still at the time of death, this is what I would say :
    I hardly had time to stay in this world : I had only arrived when I had to leave “

    Life seems short even it lasts several decades

    A wistful poem.
