I see the depart of great souls
From this world, one after the other.
people bereft , confused and sad
each one more than another.
Without leaders, without their guides.
Without beckons for the path to abide.
The intelligentsia getting replaced by fools
The just and kind, by the cruel and blinds.
The darkness is following,
The Candles blowing off quickly.
The sadness is following,
The happiness blowing off quickly.
Behold O dear heart, Beat slowly!
Hold on to the faith and walk steadfastly.
Hold on to the prayer and pray generously.
Hold on to this journey to pass it with ease.
( This poem is dedicated to all the great souls I have seen leaving us in last few months, especially the news from yesterday of Maulana Junaid Jamshed’s death has left me sad, May Allah grant him Jannah and his soul rest in Peace . Aameen )
