A Dream………



Slept hearing the sounds of her own sobs and weep

On a damp pillow , swollen eyes and heart with cuts deep

Wakes up gliding in a sea of her own tears

With nobody around , Loneliness and no fears


She lie there with arms bent around her knees

Staring at the pervasive vastness of limitless seas

People who modified her life were not around

Busy in their own lives they made her astound


Alone she stand to face her life planned by them

To reveal and to hunt, whether to find sand or a gem

She thought she had cried over her loss for long

Now she had to take a step forward and be strong


Life has to pass, through laughs or through cries

Choosing the easy way is clever, higher she flies

Leaving behind everyone she loved before

Preparing herself to love one’s she never adore


Looking at the reflection of her face in pool of her own tears

She threw into it, her love her dreams, wishes and her fears

Shivering inside, feeling helpless, lonely but calm and quiet

She bestowed herself to Him, He is the one who is just right


Preparing to fly high, she looks at the clear blue sky

Shoulders without burden , she took a warm sigh

Wishing to feel all her life , the same optimism’s gleam

But sad she was , because this was only a dream…..!

    Heartfelt words from the inner self.Thanks a lot for revisiting.Wishing you delightful and blissful dreams.Cheers.jalal

  2. I can always relate to your writing so much! Love this
    Great job as usual Hira! =) x

  3. I guess one good thing about others planning your life is that instead of things never going according to your plans they’ll be not going according to someone else’s plans instead. Also it gives you more time to cry over plans that failed today instead of always trying to think up new plans that will fail tomorrow.

    Not sure if you got my recent emails.

    • I agree Cabrogal ! No one of my friends got engaged so early…. Its been one and a half year since I am….I guess I was given enough time to cry over and take a new start ! I am still in the cycle of crying over….
      I got them replied too…. Gonna check for your further replies now !
      Thank you so much … You have always been a wonderful friend ๐Ÿ™‚ Love you ! xx

  4. ๐Ÿ™‚ Dream on girl… It is the fuel of life… The spark of creativity… ๐Ÿ™‚
    Dream on to appreciate the beauty and NOT to fulfill the dream…
    Because one of my friends once said; we get the things we never aspire for ๐Ÿ™‚

    Good poem ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I will….I can change the ‘human’ nature of me ! ๐Ÿ™‚
      Oh yes I have always experienced it….Jitna me kisi dream k peechay bhaagti hun , wo utna e thakaati hai aur pher b it never come true !
      That is why I was saying to someone else here in the comments too…K I don’t know why people never get what they wish for…As far as I have seen….
      To every person , other person’s life seems perfect .
      You know out of my four friends , each one got what the other one wished for…..!! I don’t know why this happens….
      Thank you so much, My teacher ! You have taught me this !

      • Haan haan main teri hi baat kar raha tha… tune hi mujhse pehle bhi bola tha ki jo hum chaahte hain wo humein nahin milta…

        Wish is a mirage sister! Jo cheez apne paas nahin hoti woh hamesha bahut achchhi lagti hai… shayad isiliye ichchha poori nahin hoti in general. Natural hai… ๐Ÿ™‚

        Bahut saari philosophy dimaag mein aa rahi hai… ๐Ÿ™‚ But the point is you can only work for your betterment. Tujhe success mile ya na mile ye doosri baat hai. Yeh tere haath mein nahin hai. So don’t aspire for success. It will come if and when it has to. Bus aane waale kal ko achchha banaane ki ummeed se beete hue kal se seekhkar aaj mein jiyo.

      • Haaan such ๐Ÿ˜› I thought kisi aur se kaha tha ๐Ÿ˜› Sorry ! You know bongi hun ๐Ÿ˜›
        Yeah I know natural hai…we have a misal in urdu about it… ‘Dour k dhool suhanay’… I guess you may have heard about it !
        Chal share ker de philosophy … Apne blog per e ker de !
        Yes you are absolutely right…. And I am trying ! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Good Girl! ๐Ÿ™‚ Keep trying…

        Yaar yeh hindi aur urdu kuch jyada hi similar hain… ๐Ÿ™‚ Same sentence… bus hum misal ko muhawara kehte hain…

      • Lol hum b misal ko mahawra keh letay hain ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Philosophy? Baad mein share karta hoon… Abhi padhna hai… ๐Ÿ˜›

        Oye! Apne blog se yaad aaya… Bengalis ka sabse bara festival aa raha hai… Durga Puja… Aajaa saath mein manaate hain… Padh liyo… Yeh waala special hai ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Mene teri donu new posts perh li theen….Comment kerne ka moqa nae mila abi kerun gi aik baar pher se perh k !
        Jope your studies are going fine….. Missed you bro !

      • ” I donโ€™t know why people never get what they wish forโ€ฆAs far as I have seenโ€ฆ.
        To every person , other personโ€™s life seems perfect .
        You know out of my four friends , each one got what the other one wished forโ€ฆ..!! I donโ€™t know why this happensโ€ฆ.”

        Teri es baat per mujhe aik sheer yaad aa gya …

        Yahan kisi ko bhi Hasb-e-Aarzo na mila
        Kisi ko hum na mie, aur humko tu na mila ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  5. Hello,

    Your poetry is moving.

    I want to say thanks for following me at http://www.oldspouse.wordpress.com.

    Iโ€™d like to add that if you enjoy my “This Old Spouse” column, I think youโ€™ll love this:


    Or you can go here:


    It’s a terrifying story called The Oklo Device.

    Take a look at the story; see if you get hooked on it, e-mail me at roger.white@tasb.org, and Iโ€™ll send you the rest. If you like the story, please share with others. This is the only way good things happen today–agents and publishers are of the dinosaur era. They’re slow; they’re frightened; and they’ll eat you if you’re not careful. We’re on our own. I truly believe in this book. If you do, too, share it with someone. Thank you!

    And thank you so much, again, for being one of the faithful.

    Best regards,
    Roger White
    “This Old Spouse”

    • Thank you so much !
      I will sure take a look at what you are suggesting, as I get free and write back to you ๐Ÿ™‚
      Best wishes !

  7. touching poem

  8. I’m in love with this stanza, Lala… :’) Your words are powerful.
    “Looking at the reflection of her face in pool of her own tears
    She threw into it, her love her dreams, wishes and her fears
    Shivering inside, feeling helpless, lonely but calm and quiet
    She bestowed herself to Him, He is the one who is just right”
    I like how most of your poetry connects life to Allah. I’s just as it should be. Beautiful.

    • Thank you so very much Moniba…. I am so glad you liked the poem, specially this stanza. Yes about whatever I ma be thinking about, It always connects to Allah so may be that’s why He has that strong impact on my poetry too ๐Ÿ™‚ Love to see you again . Ab ghaeb mat ho jana pher se ๐Ÿ™‚ Love you !

      • That’s good.
        Hahah… I had a busy busy month combined with lots of inspiration but no time nor energy to sit and write. So yeah… My online life in September was dull. Let’s hope dobara aesa na ho:)

    very beautiful, and. . . painfully disappointing for the dreamer.

    • Thank you ! Yes it was painful…Dreams are mean to be painful if not fulfilled ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for the comment ! xx

      • rjl2727

         /  October 17, 2013

        yes, and what is strange is that it never seems to keep us from dreaming dreams we know will likely not be fulfilled. here is wishing that your best dreams are realized; if not in this world and life, well, then. . . i guess there is reason to hope for the next.

      • You are right…. ๐Ÿ™‚

I Would Love To Hear From You !
