I climbed these Mounts, these rocks on high

I’ve searched for you in the depths of rivers

Come here once lest you render me sorrowful

I’ve unwillingly fallen in love with you

Don’t take from me this contentment of heart

O’ wherever I look, I see you, even with eyes shut

Your scent, when it touches past me, brushes me

Makes lanterns in caverns dark light up hope

(Dad took this photo somewhere in Doonga-Gali, Pakistan)
