Letter to Zahra, When You Start Dating.
Watching you grow up before my eyes, its a milestone moments for me. I’m scared there won’t come a chance for me to say these words to you when a time comes for you to start dating, so..just in case, you will find this notes on my computer under the file “Letters for Zahra”.
” My dear Zahra, find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep…
Wait for the boy who kisses your forehead too, not only your lips, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends, who thinks you’re just as pretty without makeup on.
One who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares and how lucky he is to have you….
The one who turns to his friends and says, ‘that’s her.’
Falling in love is a wonderful feeling, as if you’re lifted to the sky with happiness..But you also want to be careful,in case you fall, it won’t be a hard one..Let yourself fall in love many times,and let yourself learn how to mend your broken heart.Remember that experience will only makes you better..
Until its time that you’ll come to a decision “This is the man I want to share the rest of my life with.” And pray hard and ask for GOD’s blessing that your love will keep on growing for the better and your marriage will last until you take your last breath in this world.
Just keep in mind,you will always have my blessing and I have and always pray for your happiness. I love you, Zahra..”
