JH Sayyar's Sonnets

448
When I have lost many a friends in the past
When I find my friend whose name is love
On finding it, hate and jealousy downcast
Finding it I listen to the glee from the above
Hate blows out anon the lamp of men’s brain
All around the mind utter darkness prevails
Eyes see nothing men become surely insane
And thus anger sitting on the nose anger hails
Always love your being will never you deceive,
Your being your true friend, always with you
It goes with you when callous world you leave
Ever protects you and in lone makes bill and coo

When time steals age but your faithful being
Stays with you in wail and woe never fleeing
