Believe Me

My joyful world had abruptly stopped, Beloved, to exist, believe me, When you unknowingly faded away gently in the mist, believe me. Like a heartbroken beggar, with intense longing, I wept to see your face, Craved ardently and mournfully to be passionately kissed, believe me! A broken-winged bird, pitilessly parted, I crooned a sorrowful song, All loving memories, every day, fondly I reminisced, believe me! Like a commanding Queen, demanded, what I believed to be only mine, Wished our love to be all pervasive, eternally subsist, believe me! Everything that happened in our life was an unforeseen catastrophe, Leave dismal sorrowful days totally behind us, dismissed, believe me! Fate has brought us back to where we truthfully belong, for all days and nights, You remain perpetually with me, no one can resist, believe me! Let enchanting flowers in Mala's garden blossom in full bloom again, In each other's eager arms, we unwaveringly persist, believe me!

Thank you very much. It's a poetic form I am very interested about, and followed the traditional format.

Dear JCB, Thanks so much. Although I was somewhat familiar with the traditional themes of Ghazal in Urdu and Hindi, learned many technical aspects of this poetic form while writing this poem. A Fave?! Wow! That's fantastic! Love and hugs, Mala
