I should be happy for you

That you can go out of this hell

Back to your family, your wife, your daughters.

But I feel only sorrow and regret.

For the loss of my friend,

Who made this damn war a little bit more bearable.

And for missed chances,

Unsaid words,

Feelings, which shouldn’t be but still are.

I’m a “nice” friend.


I’m a “nice” friend.

I should feel sorrow for you,

That you have to stay.

But I feel only happiness,

That you remain with me.

In my life, not their.

That the hope still lives,

And my dreams.
