What is this life? – full of everything…
Do we have time to stand and stare?
When everything desires your time…
Every sixty one seconds of a minute
Every sixty one minutes of an hour
Every twenty five hours of a day
Every eight days of a week
And two hundred and fifty six days of a year
Stole your time to sit and stare…
No time to stand beneath the coconut trees
And stare as far as beyond the seas…
No time to see, what meadows you pass
Where birds flutter numbers of eight…
No time to blink at the colourful flowers
Which the bees are so fond of...
No time to telescope the broad sky
That is scattered with stars and meteors...
No time to turn to Baby’s giggle
And watch her play with her toys...
No time to wait for Mama’s mouth
To enrich that loving smile...
No time to sit beside Papa
For a heart to heart chat
No time to evaluate My reflections
To improve and prepare for the next step.
A poor life this is;
Lack of chances to think and ponder
Void of love and care for each other
No special time with yourself
No special time with the One and Only
The Al-Mighty ALLAH
For we have no time to sit and stare.
