by Shahida Latif
Whenever I depart
To the new destinations,
Begin to emerge up in the mind.
Tears begin to hang
On the lashes like lamps,
When at night I wrapping myself
In the blanket of night,
I close my eyes your image
Begins to glimmer, waft in my mind
Like a star in the sky.
I ask someone to resolve
Whether it is love or a shadow of love
That foreruns before it encroaches
To have firm grips on heart, mind and soul.
