The road my father paves

Written by: kasim ishmael


Remember seeing my father coming
Home from work on his bicycle
And it was a cold and rainy day
And he was soaking from the drizzle

And I can tell he was getting sick
But he would never once complain
And he would have fever to his bones
And get dress and go back to work again

My father was strong as a mountain
But with a heart soft as a baby cries
And he would live his whole life
Like that until that sad day that he dies

He was a man of very few words
And all his words was full of wisdom
My father never smoke in his life
Or drink alcohol or ever taste rum

My father always led by example
And he was a respected man
And though none of us could be like him
But we will always try the best we can

My father had the biggest heart
Caring for everyone so sincerely
He never close his eyes to those in need
He would give his last unselfishly

So many good things he has done
For all the times he was here
And we all know deep down inside
Now much he really truly care

I wish I had told him more
How much I admired him so
And for the rest of my life he will
Always be the one I look to as my hero

Father even though we might not have say it
We appreciated all that you do
And we have been so truly bless
To have had a father like you

Today on February 6 th
Makes it nine years he past away
And the pain of missing him
Feels like it was just yesterday

We know you are looking at us
From heaven above the sky so blue
And every day of our life’s
Our foot steps will always follow you

Though you have past and gone
Your legacy is for ever engrave
For the future generations to walk
On the righteous road that you pave
