Let me tell you about a friend of mine

We meet up around the best time

Once a year that’s all it takes

To soothe my heart and for it to soften

Let me tell you about a friend of mine

This friend teaches me patience from the beginning of dawn

The joy it brings is endless

You have Ibadah, dhikr, and Taraweeh

Coming home with sore knees

Oh but it’s so worth it to see you

Let me tell you about a friend of mine

Helps me grow as a person, and expands my mind

Oh the Quran in your presence is amazing

The gratitude that fills my surroundings is worth the praising

Ya Allah you grant me the best of friends

Oh Ramadan I can’t wait to meet you again

God willing, you be the reason we go to Jannah

I’m ready to meet you got my mindset ready and my people

We are constantly waiting for you

I watch for the crescent, the beaming moon

When I see the shape, it reflects on my smile

It will be shown soon, God willing

I can’t wait to meet you soon

My dear friend

Ramadan
