Life, Little things

To My Daughter

These words are for you

As long as I can remember I’ve wanted to meet you
I don’t ever want you to think you’re not meant to be
Because this was planned by the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

Wondering who you’ll become
Thinking about our time together
Hoping I can live up to your expectations
Wishing we’ll never fight –
Knowing fully that there will be days
were I’m not going to be your favourite

I pray you’ll never feel restrained by our religion
And grow up to love Islam & Allah
Knowing what our goal is
Because I want to meet you again in Paradise

I hope I can be the one you look up to –
The one you can turn to
I’m going to try my best
but so scared I’ll disappoint you,
that I’ll disappoint myself
Scared of the world you’ll grow up in
Knowing I won’t be able to protect you


Little things


I’m too scared to make this phone call
because I don’t know whats on the other end
You know that if I could, I would take your place
Life is not meant to be lived without you
You were never meant to go trough this
You have your whole life ahead of yourself
Reasons we cannot understand
that we all have to leave this earth
But remember you’re not alone
We will come for you soon
Your family and friends
We will all be together again
