What will change

if your mountains aren’t high

if your valleys aren’t long

if your clouds don’t flow

if your gazelles and roes don’t look as a man?


I love you

You’re my Garabagh

You’re my black garden

You’re my black and white

You’re bigger than yourself

You’re bigger than my word

(You’re my voice)



Garabagh you’re my fate

What can I write on the white paper by my pen?


I only know

my height will be short

my shoulder will be curve

my tongue will be short

my revenge will be invalid

till I don’t come back to you

but this isn’t life

Tomorrow God can say:

Oh man,

I didn’t create you like this……



I’m neither pagan nor a sacred place,

I’m neither two nor one,

I’m God’s namesake,

But I’m not his friend.


I couldn’t be a king when I was fourteen,

Perhaps I was born untimely.

I didn’t live a flower life,

I wasn’t a black stone as well.


…It was before the mankind,

I fell from heaven,

I go there again,

I’m not thirty.



My blind,



responsible, dear friend.


My bright-faced,


responsible, faithful friend

waits for soldier’s way.


My responsible friend

has a silver ring

with Ayat-al Kursi

on his ring finger.


My responsible, faithful


has an evident way, trace,





My friend has a good name with his belief,

My friend can perform a ritual worship,

My friend can keep the fast.

He keeps the fast not with his body,

but with conscience,

He’s good in this condition.
