An ode to Karachi; And it's hot, sweltering streets. To the writings on the walls; Some messy, some neat. To everyday festivals; That distribution of sweets. To the rickshaws, the buses; And people on their feet. To sweating profusely, In the afternoon heat. To the mosques and minarets; The temples and church seats. To the place where the land, And the vast, blue sea meet. To this city; I gave my heart. Thought it was an end; But it was a start. I started from here, And here I came; Every year I returned, Things were the same. So I went around, The cities and towns. Breathing in, The smiles and frowns. And everywhere I went; I left behind, A part of my heart; A thought from my mind. But when I returned, For real this time. The heart left here, Was worth a dime. So Karachi, my love; I'm sorry to say. My heart is everywhere; It continues to stray. Though me and mine; Will here stay.
