Aaj Ka Din — Pearl Anniversary

 

(For the full ghazal go to https://sohaibalvi.wordpress.com/2014/05/19/aaj-ka-din/ on this very blog page)

Were we not destined to love 24/7 my dear wife?
You see Allah destined us to be wedded on 24/7.

On this day you trusted your hand in mine though I was not worthy of your beauty and soul. You trusted to share your future with me when I had no future promised. You trusted me when I had nothing, and you had everything.

I pray to Allah to give me only that which I need for myself but to give me a fortune to spend on you; to give you the one thing you have never, ever asked from me. And that is something for yourself.
