IN THE MEMORIES OF LOVING FATHER

INTO YOUR ARMS
I dedicate this poem to my Late Beloved Father in his ever loving memory [08/07/1945 - 09/05/1987]

"A truly rich man is one whose children run into his arms.......
when his hands are empty." ― Ziad K. Abdelnour

The most loving Heart to listen.......
wonderful living memory to an elite determination.
With your beautiful words my life tuned to perception,
in my weakness, I find strength because you are my inspiration.

Your heart wants me to walk in path.....Holy,
though it's narrow you taught me no folly.
With torch of hope you wanted me to lead in every rally,
your affection gave me the courage to win in life though, slowly.

Many restless nights you made me sleep on your shoulder,
held me in your arms and hummed a melody song.
Never did you whisper a word of pain from your heart,
but secretly would wipe away your tears to tell you are unhurt.

I know how you bore the words of affliction,
though people have a name for you as most stubborn.
Yet, you loved to consume bitter soup in life,
to take care of my tender heart to be alive.

I do summarize your kind affection,
The way you smiled with tender expression,
Though I live my life each day....Victoriously,
not even a single day would pass without your loving memory.
.............................................................................................................

'Money is extremely important to live....save them,
but it might not stay with you one day.
Memories of beloved are precious...treasure them,
they are ever beautiful in every way.'

A great write about father indeed. Poems and articles are usually written on mothers mostly, and very rarely does anybody write about fathers. Without denying the fact about mothers' love, affection, care and sacrifices, I like to reiterate that fathers' contribution is not less too. This made a fascinating read.

Although many of us don't have such fond memories of our father, it's good to know that you had a gift from heaven. You were obviously a daddy's girl. Thanks for sharing.

While the presence of our loved ones in our lives are always great but in their absense their presence is felt even more.The poem has great composure and emotions are expressed gracefully.
