Dedicated to my husband Petar
Sometimes I just awake with fear
that you are gone. An empty space
lies down beside me, where your face
was lying next to mine, quite near.
I search for you, I crave you, dear
I seek your smell in every room.
My loneliness and worries loom,
My future seems unclear.
Your poems still caress my ear
– the soul of an insatiable guitar
who searches for the solitary star
emerging from the ephemera.
I welcome you and madness sheer
besiege my heart. I skip a beat,
there is no time for self retreat,
I am safe for now, I disappear.
