Poem: Time for Apology

I write this poem in earnest
In the Name of Allah, The Greatest

Many a time I have made mistakes
Maybe I forgot to give and take

I ask for everyone's forgiveness
if I have ever caused unpleasantness

E-mails and letters I forgot to reply
Agreements which I did not comply

Promises which are not operational
An unkind word which was unintentional

Please make halal whatever I take from you
Whether it's time or space in your in-box too

There are times when I forget
These are also times when I regret

You know, we are all human beings
Prone to many misunderstandings

Put the past behind us, can you see
If you want life full of tranquility

Life is short and full of unpredictness
Hence I wish to ask for your forgiveness

Time to forgive others since it is a virtue
If you want Allah to forgive you too
