Nowruz is the first day of our New Year
A day filled with happiness and beauty
That hides the sadness inside his heart and
Releases only happiness to people

Remembering Nowruz
I see a smile on my face
A light in my eyes
Strength in my heart

Nowruz is an opportunity to gather
An assembly of families
A meeting of best friends
A trip to a beautiful place
A time to get enjoyment from life

I am telling you readers
Everyday is not like this
Pray for the Afghan people
That each day be like a day of Nowruz
