A note of appreciation for my father


Can I ever thank you enough for being the wonderful man you are?
Abo, thank you for your patience,
For your unconditional love,
For the warmth in your hug,
Thank you for your encouragement,
For your heart and ability to forgive my mistake,
Abo, my life is just as incomplete as the land is without the rain,
It is as if there is a constant reminder of something precious missing,
Like the feeling of inadequateness,
Or the loss of someone dear,
Abo, my love for you will never cease to exist,
Waan ku jeclahey
Appki yaad dil ko rulati hai,
Aur kitna saal yeh khamooshi rahe gaye?
How long will the lines of anger, misunderstandings, and disappointments last?
Kitna paas bhi app kitne door ho abo macaan?
I’m sorry for all the pain that I have caused your heart,
One should be truly honored to have a father like you,
As days go by I understand the value of relationships,
The value of my father can never be measured,
Thank you for being my father,
For being the incredibly intelligent man that you are,
For being so compassionate,
for your passionate love for your religion, people, family and education,
I pray that in the hereafter we can share sit together and chit chat,
And thank you, even in absence, for being the biggest influence in my life.
Abo you're the best force in my life and I love you from the bottom of my lungs (:
With love and respect,
Your little girl,
Halima Ali Ahmed

Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
