Our Marriage Anniversary - Nineteen Eighty Five Third Of May - Poem by Shahid H Khan

We were tied together on this day,
Nineteen eighty five, third of May,
A glimpse of you on that fateful day,
Made me fall in your charms’ way.

We are now thirty years away,
From that fateful day;
But for me, even today,
It’s nineteen eighty five, third of May.

We embarked on our journey,
Faltering on the way,
But we saw together,
Every moment, sad or gay.

Of all those thirty long years,
Some were merry; some had tears,
But that’s life, as we know:
Equal measure of joy and woe.

We are under clouds today,
Leave me not on the way,
Sun will shine again,
Let’s wait for that day.

Let’s bring hope and keep despair away,
Trust me my sweetheart, not far is the day
When, we shall see again;
Nineteen eighty five, third of May.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this poem for my wife who left me after thirty years of marriage; saying that she never loved me. Our thirtieth marriage anniversary was a few months away when she left me. I wrote this poem begging her not to leave me and come back so that we could celeberate our thirtieth marriage anniversary together.
