IKROM OTAMUROD, poet, contributor for reputed literary magazine “Star of the East”. Published many books, including poetry collection “You”.

If some people miss you whole-hearted,
Pine for you and strive to go your side.
It signifies that you’re alive undoubted,
It means you fit as fiddle and so right.

If one thinks of you with wounded worry,
In the jealous eyes as spear stands.
So, you are warm-hearted rich in glory,
Thus, you are deserving, faithful friend.

If some people pray for you in urgent –
Begging God for lucky life and hope.
It signifies that you’re Mashrab insurgent,
It means you are devotee – head on rope.

If one fling at you reproach, stone,
From the backstage all the time, all-over.
It signifies, your patience’s never fallen,
It means, you are the best and vital power.

If some people see you in a dream,
And embrace unreal wish at noon .
You are alone poor lucky seem,
It means, you are nonsensical Mejnun.
