From The Land Of The Sand Dunes To London 2010 - Poem by shirani ibrahim

From the Sand Dunes to London...
Sitting here waiting watching the hands of the clock tick by
My phone stares at me in silence as my heart does sigh
Wake up to a 11th of March, thoughts floats into a worried sphere
Awaiting the call from a father and my two daughters dear..
Pushing the buttons on my phone to rid of uneasy thought
i heard my angel say 'Mum we just arrived' fears became nought
I crawl back into my proper senses reaching to God with feelings so divine
As Nadia soon walks the red carpet of the Barbican Hall with dignity fine
I look into Melina's convocation photos and my mind pictures Nadi stand
Her cap and gown hand in hand with her dad and sister in graduation land
The smile on her face wipes away the sadness in my weary face
As This is a parental dream so joyful with honor and profound grace.
Two graduates so deserving, is blessed with a gratifying mind and soul
They stumbled across rugged roads to acheive this educational goal
A greatest blessing a triumph to parents as another dream unfolds
Deluging with happiness my heart reaches out to their adorable hold.
A feeling of inner happiness in my heart and soul makes life complete
With pride i hold back my tears with tissues in hand wow a grand treat! .
