Help

  

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

(Sheen-March2016)

But No Cigar

Tell us about a time things came this close to working out… but didn’t. What happened next? Would you like the chance to try again, or are you happy with how things eventually worked out?

A Hand-Me-Down

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.
