This day is an important day for the world and Pakistan,
Its founder Quaid-e-Azam M.A. Jinah was born on this day,
On this day the whole world celebrates Merry Christmas,
I don't ask anything from you and I do not pray.
Will you please end this day happily without any bloodshed,
You are mightiest and sovereign, you are kind and merciful,
Will you please make the coming night a night of smiles,
And let us sleep with joy that this day was so fanciful?
Dear God! Let Pakistanis celebrate this day as a man only,
A man who loves to love everyone and hates to hate anyone,
Can you give a day to us in that at all there is no violence,
I remind you during Fist World War white flags were waived,
Fighting armies celebrated it with loud laughter but guns' silence.
Dear God! I just want to sleep without any bad news,
No red blood, no white tears and with no sad news.
