We Shall Always Fly

We shall fly for the children
We shall fly for the books
We shall fly for the schools
We shall spread the message
We will deliver everywhere

Until we can fly no more
Until we have no air
Until our prayers run out
Until we are no more
Until we have left our mark

We now soar up elsewhere
We now have wings of our own
We pray still for the children
We still raise funds in blessings
We will never abandon you

Just promise us more will fly
Promise more join the cause
Promise every child will read
Promise you will go on and on
Promise we have not flown in vain

–Sohaib Alvi

Dedicated to the brave father and son, Babar Suleman and Haris Suleman, who died when their single engine plane crashed into the sea. They were on their last leg of flying around the world to raise funds for under privileged children’s education in Pakistan. May Allah grant them a special place in heaven.
