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.
