An ode to my daughter.

01/08/2015Β  16:55

I heard your first cry.
‘Everything is fine! ‘
Traumatic ordeal – forgotten.
Alhamdulilah

Months of waiting and praying
In my hands finally.
So tiny. So precious.
Alhamdulilah

Your birth taught me
the strength of my body,
the resilience of my mind,
the power of prayers.
Alhamdulilah

Two strangers united
in love and faith
to bring forth
the perfect miracle of Allah.
Alhamdulilah

Words do no justice
to the multitude of emotions.
Photographs donot capture
the essence of my feelings.
Alhamdulilah

Your name is a reminder to me
to praise The One who
blessed me with You.
Alhamdulilah

An ODe to my daughter - The coolness of my eyes. Alhamdulilah

  3. MashaAllah your poem was such an amazing reminder of the feeling I felt at the birth of both of my daughters. Sadly, sometimes we forget what a blessing and miracle it is. I need to be nudged to remember that even though they may not be small anymore nor can I hold them in my arms and cradle them, I will always hold them in my heart.

  4. Masaha’Allah becoming a mother and holding your child in your arms for the first time certainly is a blessing. Lovely poem
