There are days..
Written last year with a certain friend in mind :)
There are days when bubbling from us comes the innocent child within,
who giggles at the little things and wears a silly grin.
There are days when joy grabs a hold of you and me
wraps us up in all its splendor, lifts us up and sets us free.
There are days when sorrow wraps us in its cloak of grief and fear,
'till our hearts ache to the breaking, 'till our eyes can't shed a tear.
There are days when love bestows us with its wonderment and light;
with its beauty and its mystery, its power and its might.
There are days when rewards us and seems to make amends
by granting us a marvelous gift, the precious gift of friends.
There are days when ilm calls to us as we sit collectively
And share the knowledge that Allah bestowed to you and me
There are days when all we can do is raise our hands together
And thank Allah for letting us be with each other
