The Place I Love

I see mountains all around me 
Reaching the perfect blue sky
Some wearing blankets of snow
And some showing nothing else but rocks
I see magnificent trees
Some short, some tall
Though not green, yet as beautiful as ever
I see houses, some big, some small
I see kids flying kites
While bathed in sunshine
I see flags waving in the cool breeze
Surrounded by the mountains 
Is the valley of Gilgit
The place I live in
The place I love


Summer is here, Summer has come

Bringing all the joy along

Kids are going outside to play,

Enjoying the beautiful and happy day,

Adults are enjoying their time outside,

In a day so warm and bright,

Bears are coming out of their caves,

Flowers are blooming in everyway,

Summer is here, Summer has come,

In summer the sun shines bright all day long,

Some say its lovely, Some say its not,

But I think its the best season of all

An evening walk around Paris

I had an evening walk around Paris,

I saw people playing tennis,

I saw lots of flowers on my way,

As the sun marked the end of the day,

I had come a long way,

And it was also time to pray,

I decided to go back,

Pray, have a cup of tea and some snacks,

It started raining as I turned back,

I saw, getting wet, all the tracks,

I ran and ran until my house could be seen,

What a lovely evening it had been.

Morning in Paris

Sun is up, Morning is here,

Time to get up, to feel, see and hear,

Feel the freshness in the air,

Watch the birds fly from here to there,

In the morning, the bell in the cathedral rings,

Think of all the opportunities it brings,

Rise above all your fears,

Because yesterday is gone, Today is here

Forget about the past and start a new day,

Tell the world, for you, to make way,

Sun is up, Morning is here,

Time to get up, to feel, see and hear.
