My Brother (Misbah-ul Islam)

My parents named him Misbah,

It’s an Arabic name,

it means light.

Like a light,

he showed us siblings the way.

Perhaps I didn’t realize,

how special he was,

Until October 27th,

he quietly passed away.

Memories of his affection,

troubles me,

what did I do for him?

My mind says nothing.

Today my mind echoes,

this is the money for

your next trip,

let’s go to the Sarees Center,

I will buy you a Saree.

And so many things.

Now I can only

pray to Almighty God,

that he will reserve a place for my,

brother in Heaven.

Goodbye my dearest brother,

may you rest in peace!
