A Special Man

Poem By Mahfooz Ali

A special man has walked this earth,

Always giving of himself each and every day.

The lessons this special man has taught me

Is a debt I know I will never afford to repay.

Truth follows this special man throughout his daily walk,

Along life's winding path and with each step he takes.

Trials may come to slow him down, but onward he goes

with determination and strength as each day breaks.

Honour is this special man's middle name,

Not knowing the meaning of defeat when despair tries to set in.

Life has taken this special man through many journeys

Experiencing and seeing things my mind can only imagine.

Growing up under this special man's guidance

Is a wonderful gift I have treasured from the very start,

This special man, my beloved and honoured father

Will always have a special place in his son's heart.

I Love My Family So Much.

To be a part of a family like mine
is so divine
where love is shown
hurt is shared

Open Them

Open them, open them
let the light shine,
Release the binds
of chains and twine.

On The Brink Of.

A wicked way the wind blows strong,
tighten the craft and strengthen the tie.
Ripping the sheets from the line does the
wind torment?

Because I Knew

I remember,
as a very young child mom's loving touch.
It had a delightfully delicious feel of warmth
and security upon my senses.

Why I Am Writing This?

Have you ever wonder why things change?
Why minutes are minutes,
or why hours are hours?
Have you ever wondered?

Thank You, Father

Fathers hold you when you have bad dreams
And they comfort you when all is lost it seems.
Fathers teach you to dribble a basketball and shoot a free throw
And they lead you as you grow.
