The love that never was

I found you hidden behind your veil, And there was enough light to last a life time.

Said Chaudhry February 09, 2013
When the sun faded and darkness fell,

The only light I found was within my heart,

 

Illuminating the gloomy paths at night,

As I searched for you like a hopeless manic,

 

Like an aimless traveler on a forgotten road,

Like a lost sailor on a familiar shore,

 

I searched for you like a rose in a desert,

I searched for you like air under water,

 

I found you hidden behind your veil,

And there was enough light to last a life time,

 

Emptiness of the deserts turned to fields of green,

Unforgiving winds surrendered to a gentle breeze,

 

Months of solitude turned into days of joy,

Years of desolation into a promise of love,

 

I found myself again

 

But who would have thought the years of search,

would leave me so blinded,

 

How could I forget my passion is but my own,

And love is but a struggle of one heart,

 

It's sweet pitch is music to the ears,

It's call the divine truth from above,

 

You were in my heart all along,

Naïve was I to think I will be in yours.
