In my mother’s language, there’s a poet which is saying:
Human beings are members of a whole,
In creation of one essence and soul
When I used to fear death,
I didn’t know fear is the acquaintances’ souvenir
And someone, somewhere else was bidding life farewell
Knowing, that death is not the end…
It could be the beginning
You! Familiar friend!
The most unknown and familiar,
Where did your soul fly in this navy blue sky
And your body turned into a soul to contain a new life
Now you’re gone,
And after your redeeming flight
Your breath brings back my counting breath
I feel like a newborn child,
And I live your every single breath,
You live in me,
And the wallflowers will be
The sign be between the affinity of your being in me.
