Oh Ramadan Ramadan Your light is the food of empty bellies Your light illuminates dark houses Your light adds magic to the hands of cooks Your light waters the withered Your light heals the sick Your light is the mercy of the divine Your light is joy to the unsmiling Oh Ramadan Ramadan Must you leave? Oh Ramadan Ramadan I shall keep your fragrance
