but increases my love for the Prophet & Allah.

but advise & admonish me firmly.
My Fahri will know I cry easily
and will cry with me or wipe my tears for me.
My dear Fahri, I hope you know I’ll always need you
despite my notorious independent streak.
This girl will love you more than all her books
that has made her into this geek.
My Fahri will love my parents as if they were his
and I will care for his parents like they were mine.

just as I am waiting for him.
