A Poem for Grandpa

You were almost eighty-five

But as active as five

 

You were there for us all your life

But we got tired in just thirteen days

 

None of us ever realized that we will lose you

This way, this fast

 

But we are glad Allah took you away peacefully

May you enter His court gracefully (ameen)

 

Here you got everything you wished for

May you get the highest seat there (ameen)

 

You can never be forgotten

The hollow space that you have left in our hearts

There you will stay, always …

From all of us: His sons and daughters, grandsons and granddaughters, son-in-laws and daughter-in-laws, nephews and nieces, friends and fellows…..everyone!!!

Rest In Peace, Nana Abu

A Dedication

I have a sweet little cousin,

So delicate and sensitive.

 

Though she acts all rough and tough,

But try to see through those eyes.

 

Past that smile,

Past that talk,

She is just like any other teenage gal,

Just a little bit more special. 🙂

 

Don’t want to see her hurt,

Don’t want her to lose herself,

 

So here is a message for you, my dear

 

Don’t feel down or alone,

You may not know it yet,

But there are people to whom you mean the world.

 

Laugh when you can,

Apologize when you should,

And let go of what you can’t change.

 

Don’t waste your tears for those who are not worth it,

Spare time for those who matter most.

 

Be who you are and say what you feel.

Don’t worry who mind,

Because who do don’t matter,

And who matter do not mind.

 

Be yourself, stay happy and remember you are never alone.

 

None of us can promise you to be there for you always,

But there is someone who will always be,

Just keep your faith and He will keep you safe.
