Faces Of God - Poem by Akhtar Jawad

So it were you!
who touched my heart,
when I was in a helpless infancy!
Thanks to a mother,
who not only gave birth to me,
but gave me protection of her lovely arms,

So it were you!
who touched my heart,
when I was in a needy childhood!
Thanks to a sister,
who willfully was defeated in games,
and taught me how to win.

So it were you!
who touched my heart,
when I was in a tide of passion!
Thanks to a friend,
who tactfully calmed down,
a youth aggressive and wild in instincts.

So it were you,
who touched my heart,
when friendship was modified in union!
Thanks to partner,
who has been fulfilling,
all her promises even in old age.

So it were you!
who touched my heart,
when I needed service!
Thanks to a daughter,
who served her old sick father,
ignoring her duty to husband and children.

So it were you!
who touched my heart,
when I lost my interest in life!
Thanks to a granddaughter,
who gave me a reason to live,
I should live, yes I should live for her.

So it were you!
who touched my heart,
throughout my life!
Thanks to a God,
who covered and protected me,
by changing His faces in the lovely Eves.
