A Drop Of Dew

Mourning does end the minute Death leaves,
The two doors of sight, so youthful thought;
So, like that breeze that gives Man youth,
It’s gone and gone like a drop of dew.
But Man still cries his tears to streams,
And still his soul for Him doesn’t scream.

Man craves eternity of his youth,
A life like Khizr* but without virtue;
But he knows not that he lives a dream,
Where Life is a debt to Owner due.
But Man does forget this moral sublime;
When slumber confounds his senses so.
Blind to the truth that yawns deep in,
He sleeps and forgets, this valley of time.


Notes:

*Khizr or Khidr is a Prophet of God who drank the Elixr of Life and gained eternal life. Some scholars say that he lives among us. For more information on Khizr go here.

  1. This is an excellent write. These lines-
    ‘But Man does forget this moral sublime;
    When slumber confounds his senses so.
    Blind to the truth that yawns deep in,
    He sleeps and forgets, this valley of time.’ Just sensational. Very intense write.

  2. Life is an illusion…and we are the victims of it mourning for immortal youth yet he knows behind his conciousness that he walks into the doors of death. man is guilty and in shame, he sleeps to dream that immortal youth but then he has to wakeup and face the reality that itself is an illusion.
