Chance meeting

By the water’s edge

The light fades

On the reeds

The chords

And sounds pervade

Across one thousand miles

Your dark eyes smile

By the water’s edge

The music dances

Laughter chances

As the day advances

The stillness evades

Across one thousand miles

Your dark eyes smile

By the water’s edge

The ragged dream

The broken seam

And flowing stream

The fish cascade

Across one thousand miles

Your dark eyes smile

By the water’s edge

Your beauty sings

On coloured wings

The sunset brings

Songs are played

Across one thousand miles

Your dark eyes smile

By the water’s edge

My heart it beats

As my soul competes

The stillness creeps

Into the rustic shade

Across one thousand miles

Your dark eyes smile

The Human Touch

Your eyes sparkle

On a hot Hazara night

You look to the sky

Where the stars burn bright

And turn

And think again

The human touch

The human touch

From a far distant land

The human touch

The human touch

Ripples gently across the sand

Your thoughts wander

To a far off place

You dream of the future

With a lifetime’s grace

And turn

And think again

The human touch

The human touch

From a far distant land

The human touch

The human touch

Ripples gently across the sand

By Allah’s hand

In a world gone wrong

Across 4,000 miles

You’ll hear this song

And turn

And think again

The human touch

The human touch

From a far distant land

The human touch

The human touch

Ripples gently across the sand

Your thoughts they sail

Across the oceans wide

No rhyme nor reason

The tides they collide

And turn

And think again

The human touch

The human touch

From a far distant land

The human touch

The human touch

Ripples gently across the sand
