Man of my Dreams

The most handsome man in the world.

Man of my dreams
You are
The man of my dreams
The man in my dreams
The man of whom dreams are made of

You’ve taken up a permanent mark in my heart
In my thoughts & in my prayers

I fill your void with memories replayed
Over and over and over
Here the broken record is a keeper

You had a light of your own
So the darkest of rooms was never dark
With you in it

For you-
I want to write the sweetest of poems
With just enough sun to keep you warm
Enough breeze to keep you cool

For you-
I would filter all the beauty of the world
Strain it of all impurities
Mix in heaps of love
Blend in joy
Add pinches of laughter for good measure

If the sky is without emotion
For you-I want it to shed its tears on the barren lands
If it is blue
For you-I want it to blush bashfully
If it is devoid of humor
For you-I want it to rumble with laughter
If pitch darkness usurps
For you-I want dawn to break

If the scorching heat is unbearable
For you-I want a change in seasons

If you feel unacknowledged or unappreciated
For you-I want lightning to strike & thunder to applaud you

To the one who gave me all
I want it all

Dearest Dadddy-
You are the man of my dreams
The man in my dreams
The man of whom dreams are made of –

Rest in paradise dearest daddy.

    This is so beautiful, and he is beautiful. May Allah grant him peace, and the highest of heavens, and may all his loved ones join him there.
