Farewell Ramadan

Drifting away
Gently with the tides,
Taking the blessed days and nights
With you, oh precious boat!

Won't you slow down a bit?
I've got so little of your gifts!

Stranded on the ground
Of this transient land,
Caught in the mirage
Nothing but heated sand
I embraced with both hands!

Only to discover
The gem of life,
Is shaped with
Days and nights of sacrifice.

When you make the trip next year
I ponder with tears
Will I still be around?

If this was the final treat,
I only hope I'm haven-bound
