Alone I sleep, Alone I wake up, Alone I dream, Alone I live, Alone I cry, Alone I think, Alone I will die, Alone I try, Alone I fall, Alone I fail, Alone I sit, Alone I was, Alone I am, And alone I will Always be!

My favourite season is winter, I love the oranges it brings, I wake up early and enjoy the fog, At night, the weather becomes so cold, I go to sleep early during winter, The weather becomes so pleasant in the afternoon, And during winter vacation, We have the fun to its maximum, Winter is cold, winter is fun, In winter, we enjoy the warmth of the sun.

My friend plays with a bat, She is very fat, But she is nice, She likes to eat rice, She has a beautiful cat, Her cat sleeps on a mat, My friend is very good, She sleeps on a wooden bed, She makes wonderful drawing of a kite, She drinks milk at night.

My dear dad
I love you dad, And want you to know, I feel your love wherever I go, Your wisdom and knowledge Have shown me the way; And I am thankful to you, Everyday! Whenever I have problems, You’re there to assist, The ways you have helped me Would make a big list; I don’t tell you enough How important you are! In my universe, You are a bright shining star.

I lost my book
I lost my book somewhere, I do not know where, Oh my friend please listen, I could not learn my lesson, I lost my book, What will I say to my teacher, And what will happen to my future! I lost my book.

I love my dad, I pray for my dad, He gets me everything that I need, He is loveable, I never want to leave him alone, He takes me with him everywhere, He gives me love and care, He hugs and sometimes scolds me, He is a blessing from Almighty God!

My dream world
Yesterday, I saw a dream, In which a whale was talking to me; It asked me for a ride, But I didn’t reply! It asked me again, Then I gave it a try. I felt so scared to ride On a whale; Then my mother woke me up, To get me out from My dream world!

I have two beautiful parrots, They are lovely and colourful, One is called Daisy and the other is Joy, I feed them daily, Because I’m a good boy, They feel happy, As I love them dearly, And they love me too!

The sky is so blue, Not a cloud is seen, Earth looks like a painting With every shade of green; The chirping of birds As they gracefully fly by, Amidst the golden hue Of the lustrous sky! The flowers are so fragrant, The trees are our shield, To protect us from The scorching heat! The cool breeze kids enjoy, When they play in the park. It is a definite sign, Summer has made its mark!

Being a woman
Being a woman is my identity, God showers on me His Mercy, When I am Arfa Karim, For information technology’s field I am a beam, Top in English Literature, None other than our Sumbul Syed, Omema, one of our genius ladies, She got highest marks in business studies, Seeing Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy’s face, I glow with pride, Because she won an Oscar For Saving Face; Women are good in sports too, Look at Naseem Hameed, A fast runner indeed!

There are four seasons, Everybody likes them For various reasons; Summer brings lots of fun, In the scorching, blazing sun! We all love to eat mango, Ice cream, soda lemon, squash Are consumed without any care of cash; We also enjoy water splash, When rainfall washes all plants, Rain in summer wards off heat, Winter has its own joy, Cool breeze is a beautiful bliss, In winter, we munch on dry fruits, We keep the windows shut, And wear warm clothes, Coffee and hot soups Are mostly consumed in winter; Autumn has its own beauty, I like when dry and crispy leaves Fall from trees; Spring brings with it greenery, And we get to see beautiful scenery, Fresh and pretty flowers bloom, Birds sing beautiful songs, And we feel joy that knows no bounds!
