To My Son

My second born, you've gone away
Repeatedly I asked Allah to let you stay
It was mainly you who would cuddle with me
Back in my arms, I want you to be
Forever I will cry
And though your physical body is no longer here
Memories from birth until now I will forever hold dear
I love you son, Ma

From Allah we come and to Allah we shall return
