Abdul Wahab


Sweet Sadness


On those days
Broke but toys
But now if there is a sound of crack
That is straight and from the heart

On those days
Used to enjoy but sadness
So short-lived and sweet
But nowadays if we fall
So much is blamed
Over a tear drop


On those days
What did we want?
At the sight of a butterfly
We used to jump in joy

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
