Hearts do remember
The things you do to them
Scars are left deep within
When you maul them
You will keep walking down the lane of life
Stepping forward with no coming back again
Carrying the burden of memories
Carrying regretful stories
With time smiling is no easy
And fakeness doesn’t last for long
You will remember
Those hearts in you
Charity of one true smile May vanish the yearlong grief Holding a hand May make someone to rise again One true prayer May do unthinkable to someone And down the lane of life They will be waiting for you to come As if you laid the brick Now there is a home to live Everlasting peace and tranquility Hearts do remember The things you do to them
By my loving and adorable sister, SAIQA DIDI for her mother…
Mom, I will never have enough time here on the Earth to repay all the love you have poured into me. You have filled my life with momentous and memorable moments which no other person could have ever done.
Being a mother myself, I can realise the ocean of love you will have always for me. And, no matter where I go, you will always be the home I will come back to. I will put my head in your lap and your love will heal my wounds and fill my soul with courage.
Thank you, for nourishing and spoiling me with love and care. You are the wind that set my sails to the right direction. The warmth from your love has kept me alive from the cold clutches of the cruel world. You are the sun that nurtured me until I bloomed into the woman I am today.
I may not be a perfect daughter, mom. In the years that passed, I have caused you a lot of headache and heartaches. I hope you won’t ever get tired of me. Please know that I love you. ❤️ May Allah always keep you happy and healthy! I can’t repay you for anything you have done for me.You are my paradise in this world and the way to earn it in the hereafter.
Worn out after a long weary day I sat on a big old chair facing the west Looking at the beautiful twilight and the gloomy sun of the peaceful evening about to set behind the mighty mountains
Took a deep sigh while closing my eyes Everything appeared still and silent Except for the remains of chirping of birds while going back to their nests Meanwhile, I heard some little voices Small footsteps and a lot of giggles Twilight started fading in my mind Something familiar with my life started to appear like a dream
“A little boy was running here and there Smiling and playing without any care He was Singing his own songs while catching the butterflies His mother was sneaking behind the curtains With a lot of glee and hidden smiles
He was busy in his own world of imagination With no boundaries for love and freedom His mother came out to catch him with her loving arms Running behind with a spoon with food He ran with a surprising smile to escape the love She hid herself behind the tree And caught him with a warm hug Kissed his red cheek and put the spoon in his mouth Took him inside the lovely house Closed the door and also my dream”
Soon those voices began to fade Last light of the sun hit my eyes I heard someone calling from the widow “Son, get up as AZAN is being called Wash yourself for the prayer” I saw my mother behind the same curtains My memories brought a tear into the eyes I again took a deep sigh I saw around, everything was changed But what remained unchanged was The love of my mother And the time of prayer
O, sleep! come and fall in love with the eyes the aching heart don’t allow them to run away in the dream
I am complaining to this night why are you bringing back my valley before my eyes? it is lacerating my existence within when I listen the voices of that prison where tortured souls lie where the sons die and where my home lies
O, sleep! tell this night to spare me tomorrow, I have to again struggle against the same memories let me go to visit my dream to collect the tears from the valley of silence deep in me
Just a click of fingers And here I stand In the farewell In the last year of the University Not knowing The next year and the next city But these moments will remain with me Thank you All And above that All thanks and praises to Almighty
O my friend In the grave Do my tears reach your way Conveying my words Across the barrier Of soil layer I long to see your face To play with you While you run and I chase But you ran too far from me And too soon disappeared in the heaven Leaving me alone in the world With your memories and says
I remember our road to school Making it late to reach back home I thought no one could take you away Those bullets pierced not even your skin But our friendship too And separated our ways You as a martyr and me as a living dead
These tyrants may be enjoying, laughing and dancing But they don’t know Your blood will be their nightmare When I saw your face Before they took you to the resting place All those years that we spend Just ended on those lips Though they were lifeless But they were telling me Our tales of friendship
You gave your life to this struggle Giving life to our dead hearts You had in you a priceless thing The blood of the revolution I believe the day will come The day of resurrection On that day no one could separate us Because death will be also dead
