“If death comes knocking on my door,
I shall welcome it with grace,
But never will I abandon this land, its embrace..
For from its soil, I rose to breathe,
And to it I shall return for eternal sleep!
As inseparable is the a human’s flesh and spirit,
Until death’s fragrance stings the heart’s core,
For my soul is Pakistan and I am a body,
And without it,
I am what the body is without the soul,
A mere heap of flesh and bones..”
