To meet you accidentally, to feel your tender and brave soul, then to see you slowly and irreversibly disappear into the pustinia, and then, ultimately, into the unknown, so young and full of life... and so intelligent and talented that I thought you could change the world... My world has been changed ever since I got to know you and read your poetry and wise and deep thoughts, so adult-like... and you were but in your 20s. But you know you have not gone anywhere I cannot find you and stay with you forever. Your „silence“ will speak to those who know and want to listen, and, I am sure, change them, too, for the better and for good:

silent bird,
I carry your song
through shadows
