Today, I dedicate a special poem to you my Dad! Because it is too emotional and it reflects a painful truth, I was a bit hesitant about posting it. At the same time, I cannot but honor the man who went out of his way just to make his family live a life where they had everything they asked for. Father’s Day presented me with this occasion where I grabbed my chance to voice his attritubes to the world and simply glorify his presence amongst us!
No matter what life brings along,
To me you are still a hero and strong.
You defy your sickness and disease,
As you’ll always be the one with expertise!
I have always looked up to you with admiration,
You as the leader, back in Badanah station.
Filled with life and goodness,
Served and healed patients with sureness.
Your generosity was devoured by everyone,
From the nearest people and as far as the sun.
Everyone looked up to you –
Some with envy and some with abjure!
Some even took advantage of that,
Though you knew, and forgave with all your heart.
I have always felt proud and fiery,
To have you and call you my daddy…
The distances between us have formed a gap –
Me with my busy life and you stuck in a trap.
It breaks my heart to be far away,
Alas! I wish there was a better way…
Like you, one day we will age too
There is nothing that we could do.
So I feel lost and at dismay
As the months drift away.
This morning I clasped my hands,
And dreamt of far away lands:
Lands of pure Love, Health, and Peace,
A place where we could all just be…
On father’s day I write to you,
Not only to say that I love you,
But to give you strength and conviction,
To brighten your day with glorification.
