(Late Mr. Justice Shah Din)
|O Humayun! your life was full of warmth|
Your spark was an assembly-enlightening lamp
|Though your earthly body was slim and weak|
Your elegant disposition was bright like a star
|How fearless a heart in this frail body was|
A universal flame in this handful of dust was!
|But the intelligent heart was not at all afraid of death|
In night’s silence there is nothing except morrow’s affairs!
|The imprudent ones consider death is the end of life|
This apparent evening of life is the morning of perpetual life!
