It's 2012!

Assalamu Alaikum sisters!

It's the first day of 2012. Before I get to it, I'd like to say I didn't post about looking over 2011 cuz what I wrote was too personal. Way more than my poems. I know, shock. 2011 has been a year of bad changes in me, and towards the end is the only time I realized why.

So may 2012 bring much more light to me and you. My moment as the years changed was clasped hands, in hope. Alhamdulillah!

New Year

It's New Years Eve
hours tick by
it's New Years!

As the minute changes
my hands clasp in hope
for so much...

but the most of all, through both days
I tell myself
I won't shed any tears...

not for all the bad that's happened
not for the good I'm leave
not for that fact of change
not for anything.

All I'm doing is hoping
telling myself

I won't shed any tears, today.

@Falho: Ameen! And thank you! (:
i know we're over a fortnight into the new year but Fida, my lovely, the realisation at the end of your year, in my opinion, is the beauty. I really do hope this change will bring out an even stronger, even more beautiful Fida, if that's even possible <3. Much love and I find that there can be a lot of time between the times I read something of yours or hear from you, but when we 'speak' again, we're just like old friends. InshaAllah meet you in this life and the hereafter. <3 (:

Ameen to it! I just want to give you the biggest hug ever! It's people like you that keep me going. Insha'allah we will meet! May things keep going well. And thank you sis! <3
