Father, My First Love

Life, like a stormy sea spares none   
Wrecking the vulnerable 
Only allows the sails 
That can brace with time and trouble
 
Father, the first master  
Holding the tiny hand   
Teaches the art of living 
Steering the strife 
Inspiring all along 
How to wade through the troubled waters 

No words can communicate such lessons as the living examples
Of a dear loving father 
A *Wali*
The custodian,
A beacon of safe havens
Or a friend 

Towering high above all odds  
And he has to,
While pruning and trimming   
Carving to shape out
The sapling 
His own seed 
Making it ready 
To flourish on its own 

*Walī *(Arabicولي‎, plural ʾawliyāʾ أولياء), is anArabic word meaning “custodian”, “protector”, “helper”, etc.
