When I was born, I was tied into an outstanding relation of a granddaughter & a grandfather. My grandfather is an exceptional person with a very unique personality. Who brightens my life more with his love & faith in me. Who loves my fearless-expressive ways & lively nature which makes us so close to each other. We have been laughing together, playing games-ranging from rattles to badminton, teasing each other, asking for advices, sharing stuff & never ceasing to bring a smile on each other’s faces-‘He was the first bosom pal I met’
A gentleman he is. With polite looks & a fair complexion.His smile (which I love the most) does the magic! It lightens the situation & makes me smile even when I’m upset. He looks a lot like the Bollywood star-Naseeruddin Shah!
The very considerate and joyful personality possesses lots of traits. His strength lies in his forbearance and optimism with intense faith in Allah. He is a highly disciplined man & a deeply religious person, always trying his best to pray in the masjid. He’s my role model!
What he taught me is how to look to the brighter side of life and how to handle dilemmas. He’s the only one individual who makes me blissful even in my times of grief. When I relinquished he was always there for me saying ‘Prayers are a believer’s most potent weapon’ with his soft voice and that would illuminate the expectancy. The mastermind in mathematics loves to play with numbers in his spare time and cajoled me to learn timetables-which I hated. But he made it appealing by buying me my favorite candies if I got all my answers correct.
He relishes my company. Even in his busy schedule he takes out time for me, makes me sit down and then we chat-discussing how our day went & making me realize the mistakes I made in the entire day.
He loves to read & makes me do so whether it maybe riddles, jokes, stories or articles.
I’ve always been a mango freak. To this point I remember a few years back when I was a kid, it was summer and my mum didn’t want me to have too many mangoes(as abundance of them tend to give me a stomach ache).Disheartened I went to my room and hid myself from everyone in the house. He secretly took me to the balcony with a plate full of lush-fresh mangoes and we delighted the treat accompanied with the cool breeze.
I’ve always loved to spend time with him like this and I cherish all these memories.
Though he’s far from me and I can’t hear his voice every day but still he’s here. He’s here in a locked chamber in my heart!
I would like to remark-
I read this somewhere and I dedicate it to u-‘What greater love is there than one which instantly squeezes the heart and brings tears of gratitude to the eyes’
first of all I’m grateful to Allah for sending me someone who thoroughly understands me & then to you for always being there for me, always stimulating me and specially loving me with all your heart. I vow to be there for you always. May Allah grant you a long healthy life in Aqa moula TUS’s abady saya -love you unconditionally.
