In April, in April,
My one love came along,
And I ran the slope of my high hill
To follow a thread of song.

Love

Love is not a wine
It's a fountain of joy
If your love story gives you headaches
It's not a true love but attachment

A Song In The Desert

Friend, thou beholdest the lightning? Who has the charge of it,
To decree which rock-ridge shall receive, shall be chosen for targe of it?
Which crown among palms shall go down, by the thunderbolt broken;
While the floods drown the sere wadis where no bud is token?

Been that girl who fell in love a little bit late
After walking away from the one I loved
Then did my best to try and correct my mistakes

Whatever stirs this mortal frame,
Are all but ministers of Love,
And feed his sacred flame.

Shaheed-e-azam

My death is an excuse,
Some sleepy sleeping people have to wake up.
Mother, do not think that the red will hang on you hanging on the hanging, you just see how many young people will bleed the cold by watching them hang on a hanging trap.
Even after my death, Iqbalab will speak every stroke of my blood's blood.

Thrush and blue-bird came North together.

With sabres gleaming ready for the fight.

To bound the waters with an iron might.

Looked on the world, but, hearing how it lied,
Returned to her seclusion horrified.

From The Masjid-al-aqsa Of Sayyid Ahmed (wahabi

When the twin anklets were nipped on the leg-bars that held them,
He brotherly greeted the armourers stooping to weld them.
