We had a wonderful birthday for Father Francis in St Mary’s high school where kids gave him lots of hand made cards and flowers and then teachers sang many songs, recited many ghazals and I wrote a poem for him; that follows, designed and framed beautifully by my hubby Asad.
This father has worked in pakistan for last 40 years on volunteer basis and it has been just two years since I joined him in his endeavors. I am so proud that I got an opportunity to meet him and work with him.
It was a really a memorable day
Father Frans Labeewu
A poem dedicated to our beloved father on his birthday
He came to our country…So far from his own
With his uncles in a car…From Belgium to Pakistan
This was his fate he believes
And with that his beloved country he leaves
From Lahore to Bedian
He helps all those he can
And makes everybody his fan
He is gentle and soft spoken
And helps lovingly the forsaken
Instills love in their heart for God and mankind
Because he came with that cause in his mind
We thank Father Frans with all our hearts
As no one can be as dedicated as he has been
And we as a nation feel indebted
For all his hard work whose results can easily be seen
We love you Father our angel in disguise
You made us learn to love, to be humble and wise
