Where have all the people gone?
I open my eyes and find myself surrounded
With only the squirrels and doves in the garden.
I open my mouth for a refreshing yawn,
But it ends in a cry of despair.
I search for my shadow
But the sun has locked it up.
In my dream, my room was filled,
Filled with friends, family and relatives.
But I'm alone, so alone now.
I wish I could sleep again...
My grandmother-in-law passed away this morning. May Allah rest her soul in peace, forgive her her mistakes and gather us all in His paradise.
