Gulabi Phool (Pink Flowers) - Parvin Shakir

English Translation:

Pink Flowers....

In the season of our meeting
I felt pink flowers
blooming in my heart

the wounds of my heart
though healed long ago
the buds are blooming now
you are caring for me again

how long could the
pillars hold the house
shaken in its foundations

the old strangeness had
prevailed as if we
would never meet again

my boy still wanted you though
my feet were covered with bruises.....

Parvin Shakir
