Beyond the Realm of Imagination

By Zubair Nazeer


I was surrounded by the things of nature at every moment
How do I explain the loneliness in my life?

In the courtyard of the heart some emotions are scattered
How do I explain what caused the scattering?

Crossing brooks, streams and rivers, drowning seemed my fate
How do I explain how I survived the fate?

Roads merged at that distant bend and thereafter disappeared
How do I explain how I found my way?

Beyond the realm of imagination, I met you
How do I explain where I saw you?

This journey of struggle is difficult, but enriching
How do I explain why I undertook it so late?
