Another Day Without You - Poem by IBRAHIM SUMAYYA

Ibrahim Sumayya

Another Day Without You

There are so many things I want to say
I can’t let this chance go by without letting you know
Underneath these words I just put on this paper
Deep inside there is a terrible pain that eats me up
You don’t have a clue of how my life has been since I left home
I wake up every morning wondering why I took that step
Day and night, I cannot swallow the pain
I feel when I don’t see you around
Being far from you hasn't been easy, nothing seem to change
I dwell on pain and anger in a dreadfully deep way
Every single moment I wipe sad tears from my eyes
I'm extremely lonely
I had never thought of it this way
Gentle thoughts of you fill my entire system
Remembering all the things you've done for me
All that I was and will always be to you
I know you deserve a better child
A daughter that would never have left your side
No one had ever warned me that such thing could happen
But it did and I don’t know why
I wish I could take it away
I wish you don’t suffer because of me

Father, what a wonderful friend I had in you
I have felt your love and care since I was small
You really worked so hard to provide for the family
You lived all your life catering for my needs
You went beyond to make sure I had the best education
I saw myself being gifted and of great value
You recognized my existence had merit
You never wanted me to be exposed to this world
Your protective qualities protected me from so many things
You knew all about my dreams and fears
You turned all my weaknesses into my strengths
You have shown me through the years to never be afraid
Most importantly to always go after what I wanted
And work real hard to get it
That filled every aspect of my life with a shimmering light
I never showed that I appreciated all your efforts
Totally understandable, it was all worth it
Each day I love you more

Mother, you loved me before you knew how I looked
The strong bond we created between our souls while still in the womb
For nine very long, tiresome months made me feel safe and protected
Warm in your womb's embrace
You spread joy, happiness and love to me
You talked and sung to me all the time
Your sweet voice made me feel happy and healthy
Giving life to me was certainly the most frightening,
Painful moment of your life
The intense pain and fear you suffered
The labor moment that was too terrifying
And totally unprepared for
You blessed my life in so ways
When you decided to take the move
Your only option was to endure it and you did
You honestly didn't think you were going to make it
It was such a dull, aching pain
The next thing you knew, was the sound of my first cry
I have nothing but the utmost respect for you
Each and every day you raised me to the best you could
Your Love was the energy of my life in every way
That kept me safe from any kind of harm
You taught me the most important aspects of life
Respect, responsibility, commitment and love
You knew how to understand and to be honest
I give you so much credit for having the courage to always listen
Each time I was sad
In those beautiful eyes, I saw tears
I appreciate all of the things you did for me until to-date
I thank you with all my heart
I love you so deeply mother
How I miss that beautiful smile
I would do just anything to see you smile again

My two favorite people, you've been there for me from the start
You spent your whole life loving me
You were always there every time I fell
When times seem too hard to bear
I felt the crushing weight of all the things I had to do
And didn’t know how to do it
On so many occasions I felt like giving up
You saw me struggle through those difficult years
You taught me the meaning of self worth
Guided and watched me grow with the years
Helped me be the best girl I can be
The most important thing is, you prayed for me each single moment
No amount of wealth could be worth more than your love
Notice how I have grown strong and wise
Believe me; I’m trying to follow your footsteps
I would give up anything I have to wake up in the same room with you
I still remember our happy moments we shared together
I swear my heart beats for all the times we spent together
I sincerely thank the Lord for blessing me
With the most loving, pure, great and best parents there could be
Even if we're far from each other,
I'll always be with you in so many ways
I pray to God each day to keep you happy and in perfect health
Thank you so much for everything
I love you till forever comes
