Oh! the souls of the subcontinent,
Let for amity be our energies spent.

Aren’t we neighbours? Shall be forever,
Let being friends be our real endeavour.

How can the love our hearts not seal?
How can the vibes our minds not feel?

It’s not just the past, we both share
Also the culture and faith that we so care

How can my eyes and yours deny,
Shared treasures, that make us sigh!

Himalayas on our heads so stand,
Lofty mountains guarding our land.

The twists and turns in Indus river,
Who’s ancient stories make us shiver.

Enchanting Thar and its golden sands,
Weave beauty in each of its strands.

And then the grand Arabian Sea,
That enthrals both you and me.

How could we now live apart,
We’ve been one, from the start

Oh! those lines on our lands sketched,
Let they not, on our hearts be etched.

Note: An FB friend Rashmi Talwar made ammendment in the last verses with magic words. How could I not accept her suggestion:

How could we now live apart,
We’ve been one, from the ‘very’ start

Oh! those lines on our lands sketched,
Let they not, on our hearts ‘forever’ be etched.

  1. How could we now live apart,
    We’ve been one, from the ‘very’ start
    Oh! those lines on our lands sketched,
    Let they not, on our hearts be ‘forever’ etched.

    beautiful lines , beautiful feeling …sorry to have inserted two words more ..lots of love …are u living in lahore ?

    • Thank you Rashmi. And I would certainly insert those magic words in my poetry with credits to you. No am currently living in Canada–but that’s a temporary arrangement but soon shall move to Karachi. :). Am from Delhi, born and brought up there until fate bumped me into a Pakistani man and we got married 20 years ago 😀
