On the wings of my prayers, she returns home to you,
Let a shining star be born to guide her way to you,
Her smile, her words, her soft touch yet strong, the happiness that touched my heart -no words can ever say it - and her kindness to all she leaves behind makes her a woman of substance.
I am poor and lonely without her, and the world she leaves behind is empty.
Go in peace, have a safe journey, and pray for now.
Someday, surely, we shall meet again, but farewell for now.
- Khadija Mohammad
