A Tribute To The Late Ameen Didi

By Mr. Ali Shareef H.Filigasdhoshuge Male Maldives.

When we were downtrodden,
The first call came from him to open the gate,
To come out of the shell, try destiny by fate,
During the time of the first Republic,
Welcome changes we have seen,
With the color of a better future, Green,
A new era, set off, ending isolation,
In the process of assistance and co-operation,
Ending the days of successive rulers,
Chances opened to all to study freely,
Paving the way to go ahead intellectually, morally,
Despite the use of bottle-lamp or candle-light
For both sexes, seeking equal rights,
A charismatic leader who can move the masses,
With a wave of hand or joining with handshake,
In rural-area development, construction work,
In the meantime, literary progress we have to mark,
A fluent speaker, a dynamic personality,
His image, as pioneering leader of development,
In his century
Remains unchanged in Maldivian history.

Dedicated to:
The Late Mohamed Ameen
The first President.

(20 JULY 1910'- 19 JANUARY 1954
