In The Memory Of My Mother, Naseem. - Poem by Mahfooz Ali

Only a few will ever have
A claim to immortality.
A name long surviving
In the annals of posterity.
Yet, those who have loved,
And who were loved,
Though they may pass quietly
Through this world,
Will always have their memory
Alive in the prayers,
Enshrined in the hearts,
Eternalised in the souls,
Of those who knew their love.
A life surviving in others
Has the promise of perpetuity.
With a certain claim
To a special immortality.
