Grateful, Asma Khan
The ambulance leaves with flashing lights and siren
Inside you, going into exile at the hospital
Breathe, breathe, breathe, Oh! Life saving Oxygen
ER and ICU doctors, colored lines and data screen wall.
After a month when you awake, this is not YOU!!!
Your body is not in your control, the challenge is new.
What you wanted to do or what you have done
In this life span GONE!
Forgive, Oh! Lord, forgive us, for our sins
Nobody dies until they are destined. For a new beginning
To build a bridge with your past
When doctor ask:
You know your name, date of birth, day, month, year
Your dear family, friends, who showered you with love and prayers.
Through the hospital window you can see the sky, pale blue
Your expert doctors want to fix you, looking for a magic clue
Somehow – it has worked out, from exile,
you come home. Walk with a walker
When a baby walks with walker, mother’s love showers
Love always flows downwards, like a river stream.
Sometimes, the river takes a U-turn, and goes up.
You are in that bend,
But help comes from near, comes from far end.
Suddenly your empty nest becomes full
Perhaps, this is the mystery of life, destiny, and fate
Forget the past, go ahead, open life’s new gate
First, be strong in your belief, and put your trust
Be patient, tell everyone you are so grateful!
GOD is very near to us!!
