I hold you dear


Being the blushing light that defeats the galling tide when you appear despair, I hold you dear. 

Being the frail flora – sprouting with aromatic aura, when you drop tear, I hold you dear. 

Being the sublime beauty of the day that dismantles all the dismal dreary, when you are caught by tear, I hold you dear. 

Being the pacifying zephyr that showers with felicity, when you come in tear, I hold you dear. 

Being the enchanting sky that lodges the flying stars, when you shed tear, I hold you dear. 

Being the soothing ocean that reeds for the peace of hearts,  when you wander in tear, I hold you dear. 

Being the mighty cloud that turns into a blissing rain –giving life to all breadings, when you fall in tear, I hold you dear. 

Being the seasonful meadow – giving zenith to the beauty of mountains and hillsides, when you scatter tear, I hold you dear. 

Being the dancing lilies – beautifying the bottomless valleys, when you blossom in tear, I hold you dear. 

Being the asterism  that radiates in explicit for the adamant of the universe, when you shine in tear, I hold you dear.

Abdul served with the Norwegian refugee council (NRC), ActionAid Afghanistan, Daily Outlook Afghanistan group of newspapers, and The Daily Afghanistan Express. As a freelance journalist, Abdul wrote articles and editorials about on-the-ground realities, which were then circulated widely. These had a particular focus on women and children’s rights, corruption, transparency and accountability in government, warlords and terrorist groups’ actions and the systematic persecution of minority groups in both Afghanistan and Pakistan.
