Farewell, My Dear Hamdi. A Dedication to A Colleague At Work.
Indigo Moon and Magic Dawn
Farewell, an ever-illumining twinkling star,
Recedes into the brilliance of the night.
Sunset’s fast approaching,
But the sweet dawn of your memory lingers;
Smile flashes across an indigo moon of beauty.
Hope, sweet Hope. Another waltzing snowflake,
A moment upon the tide of eternal time,
And your magical charisma,
Will bear the promise of another day.
For now our dreams are ephemeral,
And it is no longer sunrise.
One day, perhaps, your harvest will gather
Into a cloud and fall, like gentle raindrops.
Then we’ll sing deeper songs;
Cascade more roses in the ether.
Dew on a flower
Diligence, modesty and sweetness you embody,
Drawing the beauty of our Hearts,
Like fragrant lavender in seasonal Spring.
The dance of your laughter, like fresh dahlias,
Still flirts with the glimmering dew.
Only it’s our Spirit’s longing,
As we rejoice in a quintessence of Delight.
Come! Thou cute sweet-tempered Hamdi,
Let us renew our friendship.
Who knows, perhaps some destined day,
We’ll sit and watch the moon together,
Replenishing our Spirits;
Entrusting it to the Light which gave us Love.
