Thank you Emirates
I still remember the sweet soft drizzle
Dropping on the sand;
A strange sensation – the warm rain
Refreshing my soul.
For 13 years I experienced the joys
Of being your guest.
Yet in your welcoming embrace
I always felt at home.
Your father laid the platform to
Make you the epitome of peace.
He gazes down on you now surely
With a sense of fulfilment and joy.
You have risen in your short
Lifetime to become a nation
Envied by others as they see
The greatness that you diffuse.
Where else will I see the leader
Walking unguarded beside me?
The passers-by gazing in pride
As they greet him with smiles.
With you are some of my
I would have not become
Who I am, without you.
Three words that I will always know you by,
Irrespective of what anyone else says.
Thank you Emirates.
