Help me to regain my life
Life that has ebbed away
Alas! How quickly it drained
Leaving me helpless — a lifeless form
Unable to move, eat and play
Pray tell me how do I get it back
Or I will remain
Immovable, devoid of life
Becoming part of dust that’s here to stay

Daily Prompt: Hand-Me-Downs
Clothes and toys, recipes and jokes, advice and prejudice: we all have to handle all sorts of hand-me-downs every day. Tell us about some of the meaningful hand-me-downs in your life.
For a hand-me-down my father gave me (I was in 7th Grade) his book. This book is very dear to my heart.
Father had helped his friend when he badly needed a large sum of money. He asked father for help, as he couldn’t get a loan from else where.
Father forgot, but years later his friend sent a cheque, and as a thank you gave him the greatest gift of all times. Father never cashed that cheque. It still lies in the book.
This is a hard cover, (first published in 1939, and translated into English) a copy of the Quran by Abdullah Yusuf Ali.
I have it with me back home, and I will treasure it for always.
