On the threshold of a dream________Naseer Ahmed Nasir

O night rose, fall asleep!!
With the break of dawn
I’ll still be there, somewhere
around you
to see you rising up
from your darks full of divinity

Sleep, fall asleep!!
the night is long
even longer than our mutual wait
When we’ll rise up
in some distant part of the universe
God will be passing through
the last limits of loneliness

And you’ll find me wide awake
like always
on the threshold of a dream
Get in, come
get inside
one shouldn’t stop
at the doors wide open!!


Original poem in Urdu by Naseer Ahmed Nasir
