Aftermath: Back To Home

Poem By Mahfooz Ali

I found the road
that was left behind
and none the worse for wear
or time...
and though the blooms
had fell to snow
there were no signs
of me to find...

Along the path
the pines had spread
and weaved a bridge
across my heart
had held above
the rising tides -
a place was meant
for me to start...

I cannot know
how long the days
between the last
breath and the first
but understand
that time was not
for me to still
my longing thirst...

Where would I go -
or would I try
to find the way
back home to this
to know that home
was always for me -
and what of love
It was me I missed...

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.
