Bismillah, alhamdulillah: Dedicated to every tea boy in the wold (2016)
Was it just yesterday
When you greeted my day
Your smile already blurry
Alas for my fading memory
In the corridors of old
Your teas felt like gold
The years flowed like seas
With no parting boundaries
With patience you bore a simple wage
That made you sanguine and sage
Yet only a smile we would see
Your troubles hidden in a deep sea
But finite is every season of man
For each has a fixed span
At every end even the venerable
Are left weak and vulnerable
Perhaps there are many of kind heart
Who will help your need as you depart
For every one who gives you a hand
One day too, shall reach their final land
