Poem | When Ramadan Leaves Us

photo by travel.tribunnews.com

Your existence is a peacefulness
among the blatant lust
You’re like a water
that put out an anger
so that it can’t spread to all directions
You’re like a home
a place to return my longing after a year of separation
You’re like hands
that lend a forgiveness
and embrace with an affection
even though my sins are as much as the sea foams

You’ll leave me
Replace with new month
And I’ll wait till you come over me
once again

Night before Eid Al-Fitr, May 12th, 2021 (30 Ramadhan 1442 H)
