Natural Alliance

Written by: Abdul Malik

Say, O melancholy moon,
Did someone steal
your sleep like mine too,
Why do you pace
across the sky
the whole night through?

O somber clouds,
Pray tell me this:
Did someone break
your heart like mine too,
Why do you shed tears
day and night through?

Say, O wailing wind,
Did you lose your
soul-mate like mine too,
Why do you wander
pell-mell over the seas
and the land through?

O forlorn heart of mine,
No more do you grieve alone-
Forbear awhile,
Sojourn in the lap of Nature
until love accompanies you
once again life through!
