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 …

– aak92

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
