If Only I Had Known…

If only I had known,

It was going to be our last walk in the rain,

I would have kept you out for hours.

 

If only I had known,

It was going to be our last conversation ever,

I would have kept you up all night.

 

If only I had known,

I was going to lose you so soon,

I would have made every second count.

 

If only I had known…

That’s just it, we never really know what is going to happen next. Life is a mystery, a surprise (which can be good or bad), that is why we should cherish every moment and make the most of what we have now.

We should try to live our lives with our loved ones, to the fullest. We should make every second count. So, when it is all over, we don’t carry any regrets in our hearts.

The Mistakes, One should ‘Never’ Make

You probably have made millions of mistakes in your life, and that is okay. Because we are humans. We are tend to make mistakes, that’s how we learn. But remember this, under no circumstances, you should ever make these mistakes:


1. The mistake of believing that you are not good enough, or that you do not deserve something good, or that its all over.

2. The mistake of  losing belief in ‘starting over.’

3. The mistake of staying in that pile of blunders, you once made.

last but not the least,

4. The mistake of quitting to be a better person than you were yesterday.

I Hate Remembering It……

The day I lose you

Keep coming back to me

It is a nightmare I can’t get rid of

 

I hate remembering it but

I can’t stand to forget it

 

You used to be there always

Now you are nowhere around

 

I hate remembering it but

I can’t stand to forget either.

For my father 😦

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 …

You weren’t there…

When I woke up on this day

I saw the colors

I heard the laughter

Everything was bright and clear

 

But when I tried to look for you

I couldn’t see you, I couldn’t find you

 

It made me want to scream

To cry until I made a stream

 

Why can’t you be here?

Why can’t I be with you?

Why among these thousand faces

I can’t see yours???

 

It wasn’t the same without you

It wasn’t okay

It wasn’t fine

I wasn’t fine..

 

I put the smile on my face

It fooled the world

But it didn’t trick me

 

The world was colorful

But to me it was colorless

Because you weren’t there to cheer me up…

My first Eid without my father.

I Did Not Realize

Every time my dreams shatter

I tell myself it doesn’t matter

Because you are my dream maker

As long as you are here it doesn’t matter

 

But what I did not realize that

Soon you will be gone

And I will be alone

With my shattered dreams

 

Every time I was down

You used to come around

And get my feet back on the ground

And prepare me for the next fall down

 

But what I did not realize that

Soon you will be gone

And I will be alone

Lying on the ground

 

Every time I want to go for a ride

You used to take me some place nice

We used to eat, we used to play

I used to feel so secure just having you nearby

 

But what I did not realize that

Soon you will be gone

And I will be alone

Looking for a place to hide

 

What I did not realize

Was that I will lose you

So soon…

Wrote it for my father….

Can’t Let Go

I can’t talk about you,

Without hesitation,

Without crying my eyes out,

Without going back in my head,

To the day, I lost you.

 

I may hold back my tears,

Because they think that,

Now is the time,

To let go.

 

But I tried and failed

I think I am gonna hang on to you for a while

Or maybe ’til the end
