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
