Ages Passed Me By

written by: Haaris Ali Waqas



'Twas day dark as night -
A night as day, 'twas bright
And I -
I walked in dark days
As ages passed me by;
My dark hair turned gray -
Much to others' dismay
For I lurked in dark days.

I witnessed not the blue sky;
Only lonely bright stars as ages passed me by.
To the stars, I waved a heartfelt goodbye -
Tears rolled down my eyes;
For they could help not but cry.
My eyes slept and woke; day came not -
Perchance, night allowed it not to be brought;
By darkness, day was caught.

The night stayed - I stayed;
The way to me,
Day knew not the path
For by demons, it was slayed -
I lifted my hands and prayed;
Soon, my breaths gave a sigh.
Though I was not high,
My feet stood on the ninth cloud in the sky -
There, I stayed
And let ages pass me by
