Menjelang Hari Raya…

by Reedz on July 28, 2014


Salam AB

Menjelang hari raya
Berakhirnya puasa
Bergema takbir senja
Menyambut syawal tiba

Suasana riang ria
Terlihat sini sana
Menyeri malam raya
Terhias indah rupa

Oh… cantik berseri-seri
Tua dan muda berpakaian serba baru
Oh… sungguh meriahnya
Miskin kaya pun turut bergembira

Selamat hari raya
Aidil fitri mulia
Semoga berbahagia
Hidup aman sentosa
