Ramazan Ramazan is here, Here is Ramazan, A blissful month, The month we love the most! A month of blessings, A month of fasting, A month to sacrifice our desires, And to take care of those who are suffering!

Mango Mango makes us healthy, It keeps us cheerful and happy, It grows on trees, We can throw stone To pick a mango from the tree, We drink delicious mango shake, And also eat yummy mango cake, So eat mango and have fun, Say thanks to Allah, For giving us such a blessing In the summer season!

Spider A black spider, Acts like a glider, Not wider, Much tidier, It’s not a rider, It’s a fighter, Scared of a lighter, It’s a hider.

My mother From the moment I was born, She was there for me, In every step of my life, She was there to help me. When all doors closed, And darkness loomed up, When I saw no light, She illuminated the way for me. She was always there to help me, To guide me through my life, To understand my sorrows, And to teach me what was right. She is my mother, A teacher and a leader; And she is my protector. She is the best mother, I really love her, No mom can be better Than my mother!

Memories People come and go, But memories last forever. Alone in this dark world, With no one there for you, Standing alone by the window, With only memories with you, The laughter, the joy, the fun, All gone! Memories sometimes Make a person lose hope; But we have to stay strong, People might not be there anymore, But their memories last forever!

Destiny Destiny was what I never thought of, I never thought it might be like that. One day I thought everything was fine, Until there came a big hurricane in my life, My parents were working in the field, I thought they were there for me as a shield! But God wanted something else, I thought I might save my parents But they died; Left me alone and had gone Far away to Heaven! I cried at the mishap, And prayed to God But there is still a ray of hope, God will help me With this pain to cope!

Autumn In a few months, Autumn will be coming, The leaves will be turning yellow, And will be falling from the trees, The trees will be standing bare, With the sun rays tickling them, Birds will be chattering, Sharing with each other The seasonal changes; Everyone will then be Waiting for winter; When cool breeze will Make us shiver!

My room My room is very pretty, It is never dirty, I never feel pity, It is the best for me in the city, Its wall is full of the pictures of kitty, My room is very pretty.

Great times On the way I was very delighted, I went to meet my cousin, And greeted him with a “Good day”! Then my aunt came, With a bowl in her hand; She had prepared spaghetti for us, I and my cousin enjoyed Beautiful moments together; It’s always great to spend time With your loved ones; Chatting, playing and eating together!
