cloth girl

T’was the night before Eid, when all through the house

mothers were ironing clothes for her kids and her spouse.

The henna was applied so intricately with care,

girls hoping that it wouldn’t get smeared everywhere.

The children talked about what food they will eat,

as all throughout the month they were craving for sweets.

So as the blessings of Ramadan comes to an end,

we will celebrate Eid to say goodbye to a friend.
