When I Saw You - Nafees ul Qadir (India)



-         Nafees ul Qadir (India)

Sailing in dreams the heaven I gaze.

Bailing my boat while galling by haze.

Looking there when the sunny sun rays.

Open my eyes it was your shining face.


Throbbed my heart, feel I fell in love.

Nighed to you, deemed share I how?

Sighed slow, dropped sweat when I bow.

Shuddered my heart and I fled like dove.


Flash I back, when you passed my site.

Slashed you my heart, tossed me in night.

Veered her feet like the Angel in white.

Heal me my love you ain’t doing right.


Appease my emotions the harsh I grew.

Writing of my solitudes, the more could I live?

Enduring the dolor rains, soaked under dew.

Nigh about to die in depths time remained few.

But feel like you heal my spirit, when gaze my eyes at you.
