Thank You Aziza
(by David MacDonald)
I never met the daughter of my friend Amjad.
But I know Aziza.
I never saw her play and grow.
But I know Aziza.
I never heard her laugh or cry.
But I know Aziza.

I cannot imagine the silence Amjad hears.
For he still loves Aziza.
I cannot fathom the pain he has endured.
For he still loves Aziza.
I cannot understand how things like this happen.
For love to bring both joy and sadness.
But I know Aziza.

Because I am a father
Because Amjad is my friend
Because love is life.....both happy and sad
And Aziza loved and was loved

So Aziza is love
Thank you Aziza, for bringing us love.
