One restless night...I slept...I dreamt...I woke...but I had had a broken night...unbalanced night rest...unstable dreams...and when I woke, all the things I wanted to say in prose were scattered...and my wet-hand shaking...coz I've had a broken memory...Yet, all the things I have wanted to say that morning in prose, I could only sing in quiet low songs...this 'Blessed Night of Majesty' called 'LAILATUL-QADRI' in this Blessed Month of Ramadan!
Forgive! Have mercy upon me…O Lord!
For my doom now I fear by thy word
I know thy cautions always I defy
But do not my penitence deny
O Lord! I bow down before thy will
And now, tears have my eyes fill
My heart wails…trembles with shame
My stubbornness now myself deny and blame
The time I should not’ve thy boundary crossed
I snubbed! In earthly lust was I engrossed
Ah! All’s vanity! My journey…now resilience
I am but only a mortal in penitence
Lord! If thou have mercy upon me
And let thy forgiveness be
I shall forever cease my penniless mortal’s ills
And never again question whatever thy wills
You gave me life, sustenance and protection
Now I fervently seek thy redemption
From this stubborn ungrateful ignorant soul
Which’ve swept thy mercy beneath it’s sole
O Lord! Forgive me; Let me be wise
Cover me from all worldly vice
Show me the way to offer my thanks
That I be placed among the grateful ranks
O Lord! I have done great wrongs
And wounded my soul with rotten prongs
If thou me not forgive and let thy mercy boom
I shall melt away to eternal doom
Forgive me…accept my penitence, O Lord!
I, like a tamed lion bow now to thy WORD
My futile journey’s end…now resilience
I am but only a mortal in penitence.
