Ramadan Poem

by Novid Shaid, August, 2010

When the crescent revealed its heavenly smile

The spirit of Layla suddenly brushed past me.

I stood entranced as she whispered in my ear

Give up your food and water just for me

And shed your sins, and multiply your prayers

Then I will follow you wherever you may go,

I’ll breathe a breeze of love into your heart,

Be still and remember I am your special friend.
