The Sage

To my loving grandfather Assaf Dib (1941-2017)

A life rich in ups and downs,
Journeys full of smiles and frowns;
Uphill roads of treacherous grounds:
A focused mind and reason sound.

Warrior of the noble kind;
Tenacious spirit, resolute mind,
Generous soul, temperament meek.
Alas this reality, by nature bleak.

Now but a frame of memories past,
A pool of tears, the sight of him last,
A challenge pledged to the test of time,
In their hearts, an eternal shrine.
