For Farzana Parveen, a three months pregnant woman from Lahore, Pakistan stoned to death in 2014 by a mob led by her father for marrying the man she loved…
Dear Death has been waiting for my favors,
for quite a long time now, perhaps tonight
I shall grant him his yearned consummation
and say, now that’s done, I’m glad it’s over!
An immortal life waits beyond the bright sun,
where harmony and mellow dreams are born,
so this is no marriage in its’ simple form
but in fact a rebirth, a renaissance!
Bid me not adieu though I’m shortly marrying Death,
it’s not the end but a much brighter beginning,
so make merry and some music too, for tonight
Death is my panting groom and I, his happy bride!
