How many candles are lit?

To get rid of this darkness

But I did not know

That the darkness extinguishes all candles.

***

FOR YOU

For you

I’ll turn all the lights off

And I would stay in the darkness

I will also turn off the last candle, burned flame

Of spirits

Because, neither the light

Will have any sense without you.

***

LOVE COHESION

Darling

Wait for me to come one day

As particle molecules

Wait for me

Let’s get together, in this cohesion of love.

***

KosovoGATEWAY OF THE HEART

Whenever you feel lonely

You can open the gateway of my heart

There is still room for exit – entry.

***

I WILL COME

I’ll come one day

To remove your tears

I’ll be your smile

Although I won’t be with you

I’ll be in your footsteps

Let me please

To be your sleep

(Translated by Faredin Demiri and Faton Beqaj)
