Dear light,

I forgot how you can shine so bright
And I am sorry for not getting in touch; that I didn’t fight,
for you to stay in my life
But this month you came back visiting me again
and I realized that I should care for you like I care for my friends
I am sorry that it took me so long to see your value
I missed you during your absence and now that I have you, I will not let you go, because it’s true what they say about you
You are the enlightenment that we need
You are the one who nurtures and feeds
our desperate soul
Without you there is a hole in my heart and I don’t feel whole
Keeping the good attributes you gifted me is my goal
Because with you I feel like walking on clouds
I feel calm and balanced out
Mainly because of the beautiful sound I hear of the book that was in your month revealed
My heart aches everytime I remember that our time won’t last forever.
So I try to enjoy every second of our time together before your departure is here.
The last ten days is where the true miracle lays
So I take whatever I can take
For my own sake and be able to survive until our next meeting
And it leaves me with a sad feeling that I won’t see you for a long time
But oh Ramadan you will stay in my heart and on my mind
