To Mehmet Aksoy

I will not shed tears
to commemorate you.

Instead,
I will carry you
In my heart,
and in the tenderness
I pour over my words,

and I promise you
that you will live forever
In my poetry.

Until I see you again
in that place
beyond the stars,
and the galaxies
and the universes
in between,

I will meet you
In the edges
and corners
of every page
I turn,
and every word
I read.

Dr. Hawzhin Azeez
