Commemorating Sayyid Muhammad Ali Shihab Thangal (d. Aug 01 2009)

by Mujeeb Jaihoon

Hard it is to recall him,
But with tears.
Harder even more to pray,
But with tears.

Never have any other Ship,
Anchored so firmly as his
Never have any other Star,
Sparkled so bright as his.

I can’t blame the one
Who say he’s no more
For, where have they seen
The Treasure in my heart’s ore?
