SEPTEMBER POEM: FARAH
On 8th September 2014 you left me Farah my dear friend,
My love for you will never end,
You are a friend and sister,
Your departure gave me pain and blister,
How can I express how I feel,
Your friendship was true and made me happy like the flaps of a seal.
I still remember as if it was yesterday,
I was told you couldn’t move but when I came you felt my existence straight away.
You moved and held onto my hand
Only Allah will understand
How a friendship was so true
Me and you.
I couldn’t go visit your grave
Knowing that all I have left is memories and have to remain brave.
I promised I would not let go.
Fives years later, the Trust in your name still flow.
I wanted people around the world to hear your name.
To know what our friendship and character taught me, and not for fame.
Over 80 projects has been conducted since you were diagnosed.
As sadaqa jariya for you and Allah knows.
The community in the UK and abroad.
Knew how special you were and offered their support.
Countries in Africa. Middle East. America. Far East. Asia
UK. Europe and more countries counting are a pleasure.
Your smile was amazing.
Our friendship was real and glazing.
I knew you since I was in year nine
You were in Bradford and we kept in touch and that was a sign
We spoke, got along and never fell out.
Honesty was never a doubt.
Our mothers knew how much you meant to me.
It was clear and blue like the sea.
I hold my hands to Allah
That he will protect you and grant you Jannah
You and my mother helped me during my exams.
Reading, understanding and drawing diagrams.
You asked for me whenever I was sick
Distance wasn’t matter as our sistership was hard and thick.
You were an amazing daughter, sister, wife and would have been an amazing mother.
We used to have dreams that even our kids would love one another.
We both loved to help others.
You have disappeared physically like smothers
The impact you had on me and everyone will never be forgotten.
It is sowed on my heart like a coat with its button.
I stuck to my promise and will always will
So remain relaxed and chill.
You are in Allah’s protection.
His love and His affection.
Can I hug you once more?
I love you for His sake to the core.
Each year gets harder.
But I am optimistic and my love for you will always remain and protected with armour.
I miss you by the second of every hour.
Life can be sometimes sour.
I put my brave face on as the pain is hard to scour.
Nevertheless, all I can do is keep your legacy alive
To remind others and myself to remain steadfast in the faith and rope of Allah and thrive.
Your smile will always be with me.
It will never flee.
I knew you loved children and setup a new sub-project besides Farah adult magazine.
This is Little Farah magazine releasing in November inshallah is in process behind the scene.
All these words took less than 10 minutes exactly to write.
This is just a small sight.
Of what you meant.
Please make lots of dua for her, her family and everyone who knew her.
Please continue to support our upcoming projects Farah With Me
