JH Sayyar's Sonnets

318
I miss you not O Fair! All day and night,
Your love and youth live in my gloomy eyes,
Your smiling face talking to my love is right,
But in your heart I see my poor love surmise,
Your coming shows me your turning mood,
Your smiling exposes your cunning in heart,
Your tongue polite but your eyes are rude,
Searching for a true love in love less mart,
Fake love in women’s eyes I see everyday
O Rose, love grows in soul, soul never dies,
We are in each other’s lap but love far away,
Lie in your heart I watch O Lady upon you fie

Women’s tongue tells a lie, true love eyes reveal,
But youth love in your arms now I do not feel,
