A Change of Season

by Noshi Gillani

A change of season
Exposes something
Hidden in her fear:
A way across that island
Lit by the pain in her eyes

The literal translation of this poem was made by Nukhbah Langah

The final translated version of the poem is by Lavinia Greenlaw

    This is a love song yeah another one this one is for all the people who are love sprung keep your love strong never let love die.
     let me tell you why
     love is the only disease that keeps us alive
     it gives us the will to survive,
     most of us spend all the days of our lives looking for love but we can't see because we are blind.
     Take your time kick back and un wined love is never late its always on time.
     When love takes me over its paradise views of the ocean my love is in motion slow motion, loves covering my skin like lotion my love from god no potion.
      Is this real this feeling that I'm feeling I tried to hide it but its revealing. My love is like a room with no ceilings my love spiritual is healing for the soul. revolution for the young and the old. Its a feeling that's been tried and tested. In many broken hearts this love has invested but none seem to be interested. We spend all our lives chasing dreams that may never come through. love is true that's the reason good people stick  like glue.
