14/9/17. AN ODE TO PAPA

September 11, in the early noon, A day I have dreaded had come all too soon,
The air seemed calm but the clocks stood still,
 for He has gone it did not seem real.
____________________________
Our King has returned to Allah, they mourn,
By all those who loved him as one of their own,
To them he is and will always be,
The people's Sultan and King, not just Father to me.
____________________________
You said your goodbye with dignity and calm,

You held my hand with strength after dawn, 
You are now with God forever to rest,
This is a concept still too raw to process.
_______________________________
For He was our guide, pillar and compass, 

For my sister and I and our family he helped us, 
As father and grandfather he always stood tall, 
A brother, an uncle and role model for all.
_______________________________
Bright smiles and laughter for now they still grate,

 it was NOT their hearts they felt break,
 No more shared meals and views to refer,
 No stories recalled, no facts to confer.
________________________________
Tributes and honour by Kings and by Queens, 

Words of farewell, memories reflected in reams, 
The flags are now all at half-mast, 
Remembering the man, the King that has passed.
________________________________
"I have done my best" always something he said,

 To lead not by words but by things that he did, 
Three hundred times a year he'd commit, For the people,
 the children there was never a quit.
_________________________________
For 59 years and King he was twice,

 Showed that Kingship was not pomp and circumstance,
 'Twas a privilege with a high price to pay,
 A life of service and humility each day.
________________________________
To those who came from so far and near,
Who prayed for this man that they hold so dear, 

For the King who lived with this quiet respect,
Thank you to all my gratitude a debt.
________________________________
I will not ask to turn off the lights, 

I will not walk into that dark night,
 I will carry you now and remember your smile, 
With it walk on that extra mile.
Stripes are left once the tiger departs,
Sultan Abdul Halim will always remain in our hearts.
Good night sweet prince your day now is done,
We came from Allah and return to the One.

Al Fatihah.

by Tunku Puteri in Safinaz
