‘Life is a wonderful journey

You learn so much from it

One moment of sadness on your face

Another moment your face is lit

The journey of happiness and joy

Feeling helpless is also a part

You get many opportunity here

Even if you do not make a start

There is so much to learn in life

There is so much to give

Do not live your life in regret

Give whatever you wish to give

Do things that make you happy

That is what life is all about.’-Poems About Life

In May 2020, in the midst of the first COVID-19 lockdown, my feelings and emotions were playing up with me. Sadness and despair had consumed me. I was here, I was there, but I was nowhere. It was especially painful not seeing our family and friends, our beautiful sweet little princesses, our granddaughters. 

Then, I remembered my childhood. I remembered my late father. When he was sad or happy, I recalled, he turned to the wisdom and the inspiring words of the great Persian philosophers of love, the sages and poets, Sa’di, Hafez, Rumi, Ferdowsi, Khayyam, Ganjavi and more.
