.The pain is back, the eyes are crying once again,
You broke my heart and I am dying once again.

You told me to forget the love that we had shared,
I can’t forget though I am trying once again.

I hold your hand and plead to you, will you come soon,
You promise me but you are lying once again.

Time does not pass when you have gone, I wait and wait,
Now you are here and time is flying once again.

My world of dreams has crumbled many times before,
Yet on your words I am relying once again.


I am a doctor by profession and have been writing poetry since I was a child. I have self published three poetry books and my main interest at the moment is writing Ghazals the way they are in their parent language, complete with meter, rhyme, Radeef and Kaafia.
