This poem is dedicated to my daughter Fahima Ayub
Under the shadow of this mighty tree
I sat, with your thought lingering in my mind.
The beauty of your face reminds me of the Moon
Of course, I do shelter you, as the Sky shelters the Stars
My mind is encircled with the colors of rainbow
At a distance, I could hear the song of a bird
With all the serene thoughts surrounded me
I sat at your feet, O Lord! Straighten my life.
Never was a moment, I spent without you
Your presence, to me a precious present
When you whisper in my ear, I lose control of myself
I am spellbound; I can’t imagine a moment without you
I remember the time, when you walked
With your tender feet and charming smile
You made me realize the value of love
In your eyes, I saw the world, a new world indeed.
Who you are, how you came into my life?
I wish, I could be with you eternally, if I can.
Love is not one simple word, for this lasting bond
You are me, aren’t you my dearest daughter.
