To My Daughter

When I first dreamt
about your beautiful name,
I saw you dancing in heaven
like a shivering flame …

Soon I felt the fire of love
igniting my soul,
showering me with happiness,
like the blessing of a waterfall

Like angels landing
from the heavenly skies,
you’ve painted my world
with the colors of your eyes …

Now I see the light getting brighter
making the world a better place,
and my heart is filled with proudness
may the lord bless your pretty face …

I live in the beautiful city of Marrakesh, Morocco. I'm married and I have three kids. I studied in the states between the years of 1985 and 1994. I'm a computer scientist, but I work as a school manager in a large private school. I also teach English literature to kids between 14 and 18 years old. My love of English pushes me to read and write poems. Through this site I would like to read and share with the world the beauty of thoughts while appreciating life.
