YOU NEVER DIED
O Leader!, O Saviour! , O Braveheart!
Words went so sparse, in your praise
To Thank You, paint you an emblazon.
Galvanised is the nations skeleton now
We dare to fight, we dare to grapple.
There is no hawk on prowl, no one a maim
You kindled the fire, darkness burned
We enjoy the blue sky with dazzling sun
You were the Candle, you were the light
You were the ark, you swept the dark.
Courage is synonymous with your name
Voice to, dumb by the oppression
An ear to the deaf, whose ears fear.
Shadowy wings to the brood you gave
To outbrave the deserts of despondence
We learnt to crawl seeing you ahead.
Now I don’t dare to say, you left
You left us Dear Leader, they say
I feel all papers lie, all news is fake
I see, masses weep, wailing so deep
My hands shivered holding my pen
Crying for the lone cry in the wilderness
I, let not my tears roll out of eyeballs
Better seep in heart, nourish your love.
Your never died, and you never will
You live in the living of one and all.
In loving memory of my beloved Leader and religious scholar Molvi Iftikhar Hussain Ansari (Kashmir, India), who left this abode today for a divine and eternal journey.
