A Poem from Tarik to Mom and Dad

I love you
For the part of me
That you bring out.....

I love you
For putting your hand
into my heaped up heart
and passing over
all the foolish weak things
that you can't help but
dimly seeing there....

And for drawing out
into the light
all the beautiful belongings
that no one else had looked
quite far enough to see...

I love you because you
are helping me to make
of the lumbers of my life
Not a tavern
But a temple...
out of my works
of my every day
Not of reproach
But a song....Thanks Mom & Dad.....I love you
