Like a Butterfly

a poem by Ayaz Warith

Flying like a butterfly in all emotions
Upon the waves of fragrance
Of untouched flowers
In the worlds of worries and wisdom
In the dreams of night and day
Flapping my colourful wings
Availing His mercifulness, care and love-
Believing His promises and blessings
Under His huge blue canopy;
O I land lightly only on the pillows of velvet petals
But they can’t see the impressions of my feet
Let this earth be hard beneath my sole,
Let me tell you that I am there to wait
The life there is behind the death’s veil
We perish here and the tears don’t fall!
