I often think of what “Shifa is
for me, it is a very difficult quiz!
Some say it means “cure”
about which I am not so sure!
Others already put on it a seal
they say with surety that it means to heal !
But if you ask me about it all
I would tell you that my knowledge is quite small.
I am not sure of what I know
maybe my understanding is a bit slow!
But I don’t want to make a mistake
Because I don’t know the meaning of my name to this date !
I am a bit confused
many suggestions of people I refused.
I ponder over it for hours at a stretch
if only, in the sea of wisdom I would drench !
But it does not happen to my dismay
Not enough words for my name, I daresay !
Still I hope to find it one day
the meaning of “SHIFA NASEER LAWAY”
Till then I grope in the dark
waiting to find my mark !
What is my purpose, my aim?
like other people, is it the same?
Will I ever know the truth of it all.
reminiscing, I stare at the wall!
Wondering the meaning of my name
I believe it is a tiring mind game!
One day I will tell you
and I will have a faint clue
of what my name actually means to me
as I believe, it is as vast as sea.
I cannot contain it in one word
Honestly! I would think it is quite absurd!
But I would like to thank her
who helped for this idea to occur
I can’t thank you enough dear one!
You are like my sun on the horizon !
