Abdul Wahab


If i were a son of king


I did not come here of my own
Some one sent me to you
Not to take anything
But to give you my all

You did not take
As I, like a beggar, did not shout my trade cry.

You would take
If I were a son of king
But you would be astonished to know
At every night the king comes to my house to learn
How to differentiate between fake and genuine


You did not take
As I could not throw some catching smiles
And spread some web of glittering pearls
But you would be surprised to know
How I cried at deep night to be tucked pure and original
