Papa's Doa

My memory is a bit fuzzy on this,
for it is after all a childhood memory..

I remember 
after solat maghrib 
Papa letting me sit on his lap
as he makes doa.

He says it out loud deliberately
(I suspect)
so I could hear him say:
"Ya Allah, 
make my children good people,
grant them success 
in this world and the next"

Sometimes we feel that our success
comes from 
our own intelligence,
our own effort,
or just being at the right place
at the right time.

Forgetting that all help comes from Allah
and that help came via
the help of friends,
a 'lucky break',
or the sincere doa of a father.

Thanks pa :)
