O Dear Ramadan

I was thinking you  were just here

 and I was told it was last year,

 you will be  here soon .

 worried  I was , how  would I fast

With my ailments year past.

And then you arrived with a smile

The first day I struggled hard

I felt weak, sluggish  and tired.

And  with each passing day

I started  to feel more healed.

to my surprise this body survived

long hours without food  and water.

my soul   fed , nourished  and better.

thoughts  clearer ,  with  a smile on my face

I could work normal and sometimes aced.

A better person I strived to be

and  a better Muslim   all these days.

 when I  now felt completely 

absorbed  ,Only to know 

you are to be leaving soon!

I wish when you arrive next year

O my Dearest Ramadan I hope

You will find me the way

you are leaving me today .

 Insha Allah.

    Assalam O Alaykum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu sister! very beautifully written, Allahumma Baarik. I share the same feelings with you. At the end one just feels so absorbed in the routine that the news of Ramadan leaving us seems deeply saddening. May Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala make us welcome the next ramadan as well, Ameen.

    Thank you for writing this and sharing with us, I feel nostalgic that Ramadan is ending and I can relate to your words as they spin a reality. InshAllah until next Ramadan comes, ameen.
