DREAMING IN MY DOORWAY
written by: Dr. Nikhat Bano
Lost in my thoughts,
dreaming about you;
With a bluebell in my hand
I’m counting on your love.
Dreams swirl around in my green sea
tossed by my emotional bouts;
My winged fancies fly in the blue sky
soaring higher than my own free will.
For you I’ve kept my doors open;
My heart knows that one day,
the fragrance of my love will bring you;
All through the deserts and seas of life.
Some yellow and some green leaves
will reach to your door too;
Messages written on their flip sides
Are all unread since many springs.
Although, I’m looking down
yet my eyes are up in the sky;
Scanning the seven heavens,
searching a decree ordained for us.
