साहित्य शनिबार

By Thugten Dorjee Drukpa
An angle in my dream came and said;
You are in the land of freedom, peace and liberty,
In the land of dignity, glory, and equality;
In the land where none are worthless,

I thanked her and looked around.
I saw none bad,
Every flower I was seeing around was blooming,
Every stone I was seeing around was shining,

I was merely spellbound,
My little heart filled with joy
And my eyes with tears of joy
Wow! What a wonderful land…..

But When I lost the world of my dream
And came to the world of my reality,
Then I found here still missing something,
Something very special;
Something very rare and dear to my heart;
The land of my own;
The land of my right and dignity;
The pretty land of my birth and identity

And the sweated land of my forefather.
So I felt empty with everything around.
I know my love
And longing towards my land never dies.
And I wish  I die and my land awake and live.
