Daddy Faiz trying to keep Emir occupied
Well Emir, I hope one day when tok ngah and tok iain are gone you will look at this posting , read this poem and learn what we are here for. I have 'borrowed' "Anakku Sayang" by Dharmawijaya for Hidayah's and Faiz's son and Maznah's and Harun's grand-son.
lahirlah lahir, anakku sorang, luhurlah mengalir, darah pejuang.
timanglah timang, anakku sayang, besarmu jangan, berbudi telanjang.
dengarlah dengar, anakku sayang, sumpah nanar, usah ditatang.
cekallah cekal, hatimu sayang, usah disesal, derita mendatang.
setialah setia, citamu sayang, melerai sengketa, di keadilan timbang.
relalah rela, kudrat mu sayang, mententeram dunia, bergolak bimbang.
Our generation have not really left you with a harmonious legacy for your country and your fellow beings. Hopefully yours will do a better job. So keep on climbing the doors, windows, tables and chairs. Enjoy playing with your DIY toys like your tok wan's kwali and saucepan lids. Keep your parents awake especially on their weekends when they so need their rest. And be happy and loving - 2 ingredients needed for any child to grow up into a caring human being.
