Slowly, slowly time passes by
Yet it is no benefit to me
My days are numbered coming to a close
How I wish I cherished what will never come again
I was so youthful
Approaching every day with new light
Till one day the flame started to fade
By oh so very terrible news
Like a bird that was not ready to leave its nest
I was not ready for this news
I was not prepared to let go of my dreams
I was so happy
But the days I have experienced thus far have been nice
All the memories of family with smiles on their faces
All my accolades and hard work got me recognition
People looked up to me, I mentored many, An impact I have left
My life is still not over I still have months to go
I can still create smiles in those I know
Tying the bow of what I have left behind
And leave the world better than I found
But after my seconds are up
What will be of me next?
Is my impact enough to silence the roaring noise
Of uncertainty and fear?
Where will I receive my book of deeds?
Did i live my life piously?
Did I heed Allah’s warning?
On that day, the only thing to save me is his mercy
